Trip Report Top 10 beaches in Puerto Rico

Visitors to the island of Puerto Rico do not know about the nearly 300 miles of coastal areas. Not all of them are beaches but definitely there are some great beaches.

If we conduct a survey and ask 100 locals, “where are the better beaches?”, chances have it that they will say, the southwest and might mentioned Boquerón. Let us consider this beach # 10.

This survey will be hard to conduct, because a person from the east will say that Punta Santiago is the best, so let consider Punta Santiago # 9. If we go to Lajas, the people there will say Playa Santa is the best and this will be # 8. If we go back north to the town of Vega Alta , we will definitely have people saying Cerro Gordo is the best and # 7 on our list. Let us go west to Rincon and most surfers will tell you this is the best beach and # 6 on our list.

Now let us go back east to the town of Fajardo and definitely Seven Seas is a work of art and # 5 on our list. In the town of Manati , everyone will say that Mar Chiquita is “número uno” but it will be # 4 on our list.

If we get off the big island and go to the smaller island of Culebra , most people that have been to all the beaches will probably say this is the best beach in the world and they might be right but for now its # 3 on our list. Now let us jump to the other small island of Vieques and see Sun Bay .

This beach is like saying, “I went to heaven and came back but for now this is # 2.

So which is number one?. I would have to say that it is the beach that most of the tourists know about. Not because they have been there but because of the advertising. So the # 1 beach is Luquillo, located 45 minutes east of the airport.

Getting there is pretty easy. Rent a car at the airport. Go east on route # 26 which later connect to route # 66. When it ends at #3, take a right to the town of Luquillo . After you pass # 992 intersection keep your eyes open for the exit.

There is a $3 parking fee, showers, rest rooms, and food stands. Open everyday all year long. They rent beach chairs and umbrellas but probably wont need it cause what makes Luquillo the # 1 beach is the many palms trees.

If you go and see a guy playing guitar on a hammock and drinking coconut water, say hello cause it might be me.
