Welcome to once upon a time, the coconut kingdom of Trinidad and Tobago. Today, due to the ever changing of our economy, coconut eventually gave way to the fishing industry and Mayaro in particular is huge in this very industry. Today, we start our beach walk at the very scenic "Nariva River" where great pictures can be taken before we start our very easy and breezy 4.5 mile trek all along the Atlantic Ocean until we eventually reach to the Ortoire River mouth meeting the Atlantic Ocean. At this point, welcome to Point Radix Plateau which in fact is an extension of land south of the main road.
A very important point to take note here is that we are dealing with time here, as our special lunch of "SMOKED FISH" will be prepared by the very well-known "DUCKY'S" for each and every one of us for 11:00am SHARP. We the various sauces to our leisure, especially Ducky's special "ORGASM SAUCE" that I know everybody will love.
Once lunch is collected by everyone, we make our way directly into Point Radix village where we relax ourselves under the well sheltered trees known in the village as "THE GRAPES", and very cold beverages unlimited will be on the offering. I guarantee that after this beach walk and sumptuous lunch, no one will be good for themselves after.....promise.
