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.

The beach at Dorado is absolutely beautiful. When we were there it was a little rough for swimming, but gorgeous nonetheless.

At first we were a little scare of going because they had warn about big waves and currents, but when we got there it was spectacular. Very small waves, radiant sun and everything very clean and simply beautiful!!! Parking is $3 per car, but theres parking outside. There are bathrooms and a small kiosk.

Safe swimming beach for kids, large breakwater knocks the waves down. Water is warm and clean. Beach is uncrowded.

Living in Dorado, very close to this beach I am very partial. However, I can describe objectively this beach. It is one of the best beaches around. Huge parking area, showers, a lot of places to eat and drink right in front and an open sea area as well as several protected by breakers. Tip: with low tide if you... More

Some days can be windy, but this is not a problem for swimmers as long as they don ot go beyond the bay limits. I saw... More

wow we had such a marvelous time enjoying this beautiful beach and bonus nearby quaint cafes and bars. The locals are very friendly and seemed like always willing to help visitors. I wish there weren't so many imported non native iguanas around the area and less garbage. It is a shame to have to see such natural paradise ruined by... More

We own condo in Dorado and enjoy our yearly visits to the island. The beach is right across the road so we take advantage of it first thing in the mornings and late evenings on days we are off exploring other sites and visiting family. This beach has wave breakers which make for a calm beach with very small waves... More
