Life Guard Services

Trinidad and Tobago is known for its beautiful beaches.  The Trinidad and Tobago Lifeguard Service patrols some of the country's most popular beaches to ensure the safety of swimmers.  Please note that hazards do exist at all beaches and swimmers must be cautious, even when at a lifeguard-patrolled beach.  Not all beaches are patrolled and lifeguards only patrol at certain times of the day.

While every effort is made to ensure the safety of beachgoers, lifeguards only patrol the following beaches:

  • Mayaro Beach (including Indian Bay, Radix Beach, Church Road Beach, St. Anns Beach, Plaisance Beach, Derose Beach, Rabita Beach and Bourmount Beach).
