A Pleasant Surprise Awaits
While visiting Anise during Trinidad’s celebrated Turtle Season, we highly recommend experiencing the phenomenon of our illustrious leather-backs as they lay their eggs. Starting in March and continuing into July, on any given night, there may be turtle sightings to enjoy at Big Bay Beach just steps from our front door. Our staff will also help guests arrange organized tours.
Trinidad is currently on a mission to help preserve and protect this important element of our island.
Witness the miraculous cycle of leather-back life as the grand animals begin their choreographed journey to build a nest and lay their precious offspring..
‘A bird lover’s paradise’. Enjoy our Piping Guan Tour where we take you further North for a chance at spotting the rare and majestic Piping Guan or ‘Pawi’ bird. It is a species closely related to the Common Piping Guan of South America but is endemic to Trinidad. This large turkey-like bird was hunted almost to extinction. It has a reputation of being unwary of hunters and there are tales of ‘Pawi’ remaining perched on a branch even as its flock-mates were being shot. Fortunately the species has survived and although still very rare, received some measure of protection. Many other species of birds, uncommon to the rest of the island, are also enjoyed on this Tour. Please inquire about package details.
