Scotland / Anse Paoua Bay

Scheduled Date: Friday 20th October, 2017

Scotland Bay to Anse Paoua Bay on Sunday 5th November 2017

A cosy little beach located at the tip of the Dragon’s Mouth is Anse Paoua Bay. Situated around the coast from Scotland Bay, the calm and sheltered waters make it a favorite destination for beach limes and an ideal spot for yachts to anchor. These beaches around the far end of the North Western Peninsula are sometimes referred to as “Down D Islands” since they are only accessible by boat. This area managed by the Chaguaramas Development Authority and together with the assistance from groups organise regular beach cleanups.

The Scotland Bay Region is full of fascinating history, and up until 1941, the area housed residents. Its strategic location caused the British Government to lease the land for 99 years to the United States Government. During World War11 {1939-1945} a Naval Base constructed and stationed there were as many as 30,000 troops. At the Military Post, the Americans built recreational facilities, which consisted of a hall, tennis and basketball court, a football field and a zoo. At one time, it was possible to drive to Scotland from Tetron, but erosion and overgrowth destroyed the road. Today all left of the Barracks are some dilapidated concrete structures, and there is little evidence of an Army Base. However, its magnificent coastal scenery with its natural beauty and soothing seaside ambiance remain preserved.

The walk around the coast to Anse Paoua Bay begins at Scotland Bay and will take forty minutes to reach the destination. The trail is alongside the shoreline goes up and down crossing several beaches. The expedition is one-way, and it allows ample time to spend the day relaxing at the beach. For the return journey to the mainland, the boat pickup point is at Anse Paoua Bay. Noticeable are the campers and sea-bathers that occupy the small inlets camping and cooking food, etc. Growing in some areas of the shoreline are the Manchineel Trees that release poisonous milky latex. Caution required when passing close to these trees since the water droplets can cause distress to the skin and eyes. Pollution of left-back garbage continues to be a problem along the coast and visitor are reminded to keep a clean scene and leave nothing but footprints.
