Went to Sandy Beach on a kind of wet afternoon and loved it! A lot of surfers were out, and the beach is wide and sandy as it says. Some neat little shops tucked in all around there and it was actually pretty quiet there. It's off the beaten path so it's great to get local flavor. While Tamboo the... More

Crystal Clear water, soft bottom (sand) so tykes can play safely. Tamboo right there for cold beers and lunch. Never seemed crowded even on Easter weekend.

Great sandy beach with plenty of space for sun tanning. Other beaches nearby don't have a lot of sand or space.

Sandy Beach is a great beach for surfing and from what I understand it can also be calm enough to swim. The day I visited the beach the surf was rough and a lot of surfer were taking advantage of the big surf. I wanted to get a few pictures of some of the waves with my GoPro and went... More

When we visited the surf was super strong. My friend was just standing at the waters edge taking photos when a wave came and knocked him down. Use caution on strong surf days. I did find some great beach glass here. There are also some restaurants close by including Tamboo.

Beautiful beach, fun small surf and tons of people around to meet. The beach bar "Tamboo" is perfectly located and like all of the bars in the area had an open wall concept.

This is a good beach for wading in the water and beginner to intermediate surfers depending on the surf on any given day. Also plenty of sandy areas to lay out

Great Beach. Good Eats Nearby. Awesome Sunset. The BEST water we have ever enjoyed. Azure blue, refreshing and perfect wave formation. Near Rincon city, with sufficient beach side rooms and nearby restaurants. Even a few shops to browse. The drive from San Juan is about 2 hours (with outlet mall on the way), but it is worth it. Laid back... More

turf is not for beginners. But is walking distance and good for tanning or a quick dip. Watch your little ones because the tide can quickly turn and pull you in.

I had heard of how beautiful the beaches in Rincon were, but actually seeing them in person was amazing. Do not miss your chance to see this place.
