Paria Bay & Waterfall
Embrace this double feature: Paria Beach and Paria Waterfall.
Trek through natural forest, swim in beaches along the way, stand on a rock uniquely shaped like a turtle, called “Turtle Rock” and enjoy jaw-dropping views of the Caribbean Sea and rugged natural coastlines. Depending on the time of the year, turtles may even be seen swimming here. This is just a taste of what's in store on this three (3) hour trek from Spring Bridge in Blanchisseuse to Paria Bay.
The hike to Paria Bay is on a trail, which is a perfect combination of uphill, flat and downhill walking throughout. On arriving at Paria Bay, a majestic natural rock known as “Cathedral Rock” or “Paria Arch”
is fittingly positioned to welcome or greet hikers at the beach's entrance. Walk along beach to another entrance that leads to the celebrated “Paria
Falls”. Swim or just view this mesmerizing waterfall.
Return to the beach, and head to nearby secluded “Murphy’s Bay”. Depending on the time of year, which is usually between July - November, swimming is really splendid here.
The return trip is the highlight of this day. Journey on a pirogue (boat) back to Blanchisseuse. See fishermen skillfully navigate through waters, view familiar natural rugged coastlines which host numerous small, secluded beaches.
Then enjoy the 'laniappe'. It's a stop at another secluded
beach before taking a 20
minute walk to Spring Bridge. An unforgettably awesome day!!!
