About Manzanilla Boardwalk

On the Eastern coast of Trinidad, Manzanilla, or “little apples” as translated from Spanish, allegedly got its name from the Spanish who alighted on the shores and encountered what they thought were apple trees with small fruit.

As one of the most sparsely populated areas on the island, Manzanilla has become a choice tourism destination for visitors seeking a quieter and less commercial beach experience. After enjoying a scenic drive along coconut tree lined roads, the beach sits directly on the Manzanilla Bay adjoined to the larger north Atlantic Ocean. It is one of the best secluded beaches for long strolls, picnics and camping trips.

In 2014, a large sec­tion of the Man­zanil­la/Ma­yaro Main Road col­lapsed due to heavy, prolonged rainfall and flood­wa­ters. It was rebuilt in 2015 along with the Man­zanil­la Board­walk which spans across 800 feet of beachfront to create a space for beach­go­ers to en­joy. In addition to a quiet seaside experience, the boardwalk also boasts of changing and bathroom facilities, picnic tables, and wheelchair access.
