Low Coastal Plains

The coastal plains stretch along the Atlantic Ocean on the northern fringe of the country. Thick mangroves, sprawling beaches and dense forests protect this region, making it a comfortable habitat for a staggering number of bird species. Egrets, ibises, gulls, herons, hawks, tanagers, flycatchers, finches, blackbirds and orioles dot the wild forests, seashores and farmlands around the Waini River, Mainstay, Hope Beach, Mahaica and Abary. Some of these spots are a day’s trip from Georgetown.
