10 Great Beaches to Visit While You are in Puerto Rico

Did you know that there are over 300 miles of beaches in Puerto Rico? That alone can make it difficult to decide where to go. Add to that the fact that all natural beaches on the island are considered open to the public, up to the high tide line, and you’ve got literally hundreds of beaches to choose from. How, then, can you choose? Let us help. Here are 10 great beaches in Puerto Rico that we think you will love.

10 – The best beach for families is Luquillo, which is 30 miles east of San Juan. Famed and photographed for its scenic white sands, Luquillo is huge, and coral reefs protect the crescent-shaped beach and lagoon, making it a great place for kids to swim.

9 – For active families who love to snorkel we suggest going to the Island of Culebra, and taking a short hike to Playa Tamarindo and Playa Carlos Rosario.  These beaches are enveloped by a barrier reef. Nearby is “the wall,” which is a 40-foot drop-off with incredible marine life to discover.

8 – If you prefer to be on top of the water, go windsurfing or kitesurfing at Punta Las Marías, between Ocean Park and Isla Verde in San Juan.

7 – Serious surfers usually plan to visit Puerto Rico in the winter time, because the best waves for surfing are at Rincon, which hosted the 1968 world surfing championships.

6 – For those who prefer to relax in quiet solitude at the beach, head for stunning El Convento Beach, found along the undeveloped northern coastline stretching between Fajardo and Luquillo.

5 – On the other hand, if you’re going to the beach to meet people, head for Ocean Park, along San Juan’s coast. Here is where the adults tend to gather, and both tourists and locals easily mingle.

4 – If you’re coming to Puerto Rico for the scenery, don’t miss Boqueron, on the southern coast. In addition to the beautiful views and tranquil waters, you will enjoy the town and its open-air restaurants filling the air with tantalizing smells.

3 – Swimmers on the north coast love Pine Grove Beach, at the end of Isla Verde near the airport. In addition to a coral-reef protected beach, there is a long sandbar of shallow water for excellent family swimming.

2 – Swimmers staying on the southern coast flock to Ponce beach, with its calm tides and clearer waters.

1 – For those romantically inclined, the best remote escape on Puerto Rico is Rosado beach, east of Cabo Rojo. Accessed by a tricky dirt road, Rosado rewards the adventure with warm water and long, uncrowded stretches of sand, towering king palms and an idyllic tropical backdrop for a romantic interlude.
