I liked the beach, it was picturesque. The water was clean and not too rough. I was not crazy about the Sargasso grass that was in the water most everywhere we swam on Puerto Rico. We are spoiled and not used to sharing the water with floaties.

The beach was small and full of seaweed. Better beaches out there. A lot of locals hang out on the beach so hard to find a space.

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.

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