The coastal area known as Cedros lies on a peninsula at the South-Western end of the island of Trinidad. Located at the tip of the peninsula, Cedros or Bonasse as it is more commonly known especially on maps lies mere miles off the coast of Venezuela and is the most southern point in the Caribbean.
Cedros is the closest legal point of entry to Venezuelans wishing to enter Trinidad and Tobago.
Cedros is considered to be one of the final remaining areas that millions of years ago attached the island of Trinidad geologically to the South American continent. Cedros is said to still share a resemblance to the adjacent Venezuelan coastline 11–12 km across the passage of water known as Boca del Sierpe (Serpent’s Mouth).
