While on a break for the Easter weekend our hike to Paria Bay and Waterfall is the perfect getaway to enjoy and appreciate nature at its best.

Tentative meeting Points and times:
7:30am Shuttle leaves at UWI St. Augustine (South Gate- Highway side)
9:15am at the Spring Bridge(Double Bridges) in Blanchiseusse
9:30am Hike starts
We should arrive at Paria Bay by 12:30pm latest.
Boat will leave Paria Bay by 3:30pm
Arrive at Blanchisseuse by 4:00pm
Arrive at Maracas Beach by 5:30 pm
Reach back to UWI by 7:30pm

Parking is available at the Marianne Beach Facility or Laguna Mar for those who drove to Blanchisseuse.

The hike then starts at the spring bridge and continues for two hours, uphill and downhill. While on the trail you will be able to enjoy the natural, clean, salty air as it fills your lungs. Stops are taken for short moments to capture the views of secret, untouched beaches. There is the option to make a detour to visit "Turtle Rock" which is a peninsula just before Paria Bay which gives one of the best views your eyes will ever see. At the western end of the bay, you will witness the ability of erosion to transform the landscape which is evident at the "Cathedral Rock".

As you venture eastward to the waterfall trail, you would hear the sound of running water(depending on the season) from a nearby freshwater spring which provides water for cooking, bathing and washing etc. Look out for the sea turtles hatchlings as they make their way to the sea.

We will then arrive at the waterfall trail which we will hike for additional 15 minutes to the exquisite Paria Waterfall which is a gem by itself.

After you relax a bit and catch your breath, you can take a dip/swim or just relax at the water's edge.

Have lunch and some gatorade as we will be here for about 2 hours before the return by boat to Blanchisseuse.

If the adrenaline is still running through your body and your mind is excited about where you are, immerse your senses and allow the freedom of escape to suddenly take over.
