Details of Paria Bay & Waterfall (Hike/Boat Return)

Rating of this hike is (4) Moderate

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 April - October, swimming is really splendid here.

Now what is very important to take note here is that because of the return trip being taking the boat, there is clearly no specified time that must be undertaken to reach to Paria Bay......even the fairly fit trekker can easily do this hike, so time is not a factor in this undertaking.

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 'lagniappe'.  It's a stop at another secluded beach before taking a 20 minute walk to Spring Bridge. An unforgettably awesome day!!!
