Galera Point – Toco Lighthouse, Trinidad

2 Aug

Here literally at Trinidad’s easternmost point; behold a dramatic watery struggle where the waters of the Atlantic intermingle with the Caribbean Sea giving you a feeling that you are actually at world’s end.

Galera Point is one of the most beautiful and dramatic ocean destinations in Trinidad. Literally the furthest eastern point of the island, Galera Point is the location of the Toco Lighthouse that overlooks the turbulent stretch of water known as the Fisherman’s Graveyard, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean Sea.

The Toco lighthouse, a white stone tower built in 1897, shines a red light that warns vessels of the rocky waters below. Take a walk past the lighthouse down a narrow path through a small gate in the fence to the windblown rocky cliffs below where large waves crash against jagged black rocks. Outdoor furniture and carat sheds around the lighthouse make for a relaxing breezy picnic location.
