This used to be my favorite spot as a child (20 years ago). I visited Dorado Beach last summer after spending a week in Aguadilla and is not even a shadow of what it used to be. There is a larger parking now; which is great but is way too close to the water which allows people to listen to... More

The quiet stretch of beach here is basic but incredibly beautiful. Not a resort beach so don't expect anything fancy - just a beutiful public beach for all!

A smaller area frequented by local families so it is not a resort beach so don't expect anything fancy. There is a parking area, bathrooms, showers and bars right there. Note it is not pristine sand and there is litter about. However if you just want a beach to visit and relax it is great for a quick stop if... More

The beach has sand and water. Other than that, nothing to recommend it for. Very disappointing. It was also littered with trash.

They are attempting to rent their house in Sabanera Puerto Rico to cover their mortgage. The property has been empty for more than a year. They want a large upfront non-refundable payment and they want the renter to be responsible for any and all repairs. Their advertisement does not include community fees. The goal is to extract as much money... More

It's a pretty plain beach. Brown sand with lots of crushed shells and water that is dark. I expected some tropical beach views, but this beach is quite rocky. The water was clear by the shore, but it looks dark because of the dark sand.
