Hundred Steps Beach THINGS of interest Las Cuevas Beach Las Cuevas Beach is located on the north coast. Its wide stretch of sand makes it an appealing venue and although the very popular Maracas Bay is just 15 minutes away, the semi-seclusion on this crescent-shape beach draws many who are seeking a little less activity and crowds while they take a respite from their day’s activities. The caves from which the beach got its name can offer shade to visitors on the extra hot days and at the western end of the beach, the waves are often suitable for surfing. Also on the island’s north coast is the Hundred Steps Beach. For visitors who are really seeking solitude and beauty, this beach, the neighbour of both Las Cuevas and Maracas Bay will give you just that. You will have to walk a short distance down the hundred steps and a narrow track to get to the beach. The path may be a bit treacherous especially if it rained, so care should be taken, but the memory of any difficulty you may have encountered on your journey here will all dissipate when you arrive, as there is nothing more beautiful than this, anywhere!
