Grande Riviere is a rural village situated on the north coast of Trinidad. It derived its name from the large river which runs through it, meeting the sea. For bathers, this offers the opportunity to combine sea bathing with river swimming in the same beautiful location.
The area has also become known for its bird watching opportunities; the home to such species as the endangered Blue-throated Piping-Guan (Pawi), Crimson-crested Woodpecker, and Swallow-tailed Kite. It is also a primary nesting ground for a large number of Leatherback turtles.
