Puerto Rico Beaches

Puerto Rico beaches conjure up an image of sparkling clear green-blue waters and soft sand to sink your toes into. Puerto Rico boasts over 15 beaches ready for you to bask in their warm waters or relax on. You can also stay in a Puerto Rico hotel right on the sandy shore.

Blue Flag Beaches

Puerto Rico Beaches are often proudly proclaimed Blue Flag if they pass a series of tests relating to the safety and clarity of the beach and its water as regulated by the Puerto Rico government, as well as an official appointed to make sure the high standards are maintained. Pay a visit to one of the top five puerto rico beaches, all of which will live up to Blue Flag standards.

Cana Gorda

The Puerto Rico beach on the southwest coast of Cana Gorda is a favorite local beach. Many people live in the area, on the shore as well as in houseboats. You can explore the nearby cays, many of which are home to rare animals. If you like to snorkel, the clear water of this Puerto Rico beach is full of lush sea life.

Rincon Bay

Rincon Bay is one of the more popular Puerto Rican beaches. Its position on the far western end of the island entails an unobstructed view of glorious sunsets. It has been a much frequented spot for surfers since 1968, when it hosted the World Surfing Championships. Family can enjoy collecting seashells and sea glass, and even whale watching, as Rincon Bay marks the junction of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea.

Shacks

Found north of Rincon Bay is another internationally favorite Puerto Rican beach, Shacks. This is especially for those who enjoy windsurfing and other oceanic activities requiring its strong winter wind. Shacks is also a great place to just soak up the sun, or search for a seashell. You can also try snorkeling or SCUBA at Jobos Beach, just down the road from Shacks.

Flamenco

Flamenco is one of the most famous of Puerto Rico beaches. It is one of the many beaches found on a small island off the main island of Puerto Rico. This Puerto Rico beach is considered paradise and has been named amongst the top beaches of the world. It is untouched by the motored devices like boats and jet skis that you find on the beaches of the main island, making it the perfect place for swimming.
