Great place to meet people

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.

Pretty beach with great waves and tons of surfers. We spent an enjoyable and relaxing afternoon here while staying in Rincon. You definitely have to keep your eye on younger children as the waves are big.

The view from the beach is beautiful. There were some big waves there when we were there, and the wind was a bit strong, but it was still lovely. The waves were fun to play in, and the beach is sandy unlike many of the other beaches in the area so you could just walk right in and swim without... More

If you are looking for a beach to snorkel or swim this is not a good choice. This beach is great for boarding and surfing. There are restrooms nearby and a couple of bars. We went to Tamboo for drinks and lunch. If you want to relax on the beach and watch the surfers this is a good place for... More

Very nice beach, not many people there when we went! Low key! I will be back! Swimming is decent, waves can get a bit rough, so be careful. Fun to watch all the surfers! Bring your own booze and food or buy from Tamboo. Super fun!

OK for family style surfing and beginners. Good place if you are with kids or teens and are looking for a fairly safe Family style surfing day at the beach. Fair sized sandy beach for little ones and fairly easy in and out of the water for surfing, one of the easier places in Rincon to negotiate the coral upon... More
