Puerto Seco Beach

Puerto Seco Beach Review

This public beach looks out on Discovery Bay, the location where, according to tradition, Christopher Columbus first came ashore on this island. The explorer sailed in search of freshwater but found none, naming the stretch of sand Puerto Seco, or "dry port." Today the beach is anything but dry; concession stands sell Red Stripe beer and local food, including jerk and patties, to a primarily local beach crowd. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking; showers; toilets. Best for: snorkeling; swimming.
