The outstanding physical feature of the island of Trinidad is its Northern Range, a continuation of the coastal ranges of the Andes Mountains in Venezuela. The Northern Range is the site of a large number of waterfalls, the most spectacular of which are the Blue Basin Falls and the Maracas Falls, both feet 91 metres high.
On the southern side of the range, foothills with an elevation of approximately feet metres descend to the Northern Plain. Running across the centre of the island, from southwest to northeast, is the Central Range, the highest point of which is Mount Tamana 1, feet [ metres].
A third row of mainly low hills, the Southern Range, adds further variety to the mostly flat or undulating surface of Trinidad. Rivers are numerous but short, the longest being the Ortoire in the south and the Caroni in the north.

Its dominant feature is the Main Ridge, which runs from northeast to southwest, rising to heights of about 1, feet metres.
The ridge slopes more gently to the southwest onto a coral plain. The coral formation has given rise to a number of reefs, one of which, Buccoo Coral Reefis known for its marine life and is popular for scuba diving and snorkeling.
