Tucked away on the northwestern coast of Trinidad, Balandra makes for the ideal day or week-end getaway. Of course a map always comes in handy, but once you follow the Toco Main Road, you can't miss the village. That main road will take you all the way to Galera Point and the Toco Lighthouse, from where you might see Crown Point, Tobago (on a clear day)!
Memories of collecting 'chip-chip' with cousins on Balandra beach during the long August vacation, come rolling back. Chip-chip soup, anyone? Happy days!
With the Atlantic Ocean on the western coast, the Caribbean Sea on the northern coast and a trail of villages along the way, just follow the Toco Main Road and you're in for a rustic treat!
