The Ministry of Tourism advises all citizens and visitors to refrain from going to our nation’s beaches from Saturday March 09 to Tuesday March 12 due to long period of swells forecasted to take place. The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service has issued a Rough Seas Bulletin indicating large battering waves near and onshore during this period.
The public is urged to stay off our nation’s beaches and out of the water until these dangerous conditions subside. For your own personal safety, pay attention to this advisory and stay safe.
Further advisories will be posted on the media to keep everyone abreast of the latest developments.
The Ministry of Tourism has lifeguards on specific beaches in Trinidad, namely Mayaro, Manzanilla, Salybia, Maracas, Tyrico, Las Cuevas, Los Iros, Vessigny and Quinam. The Tobago House of Assembly is responsible for the beaches in Tobago.
