The little island was sort of pretty. Not much to it. It was super busy. The water was rough where the caribbean and atlantic meet and you are right up against the mangroves. This was NOT my ideal vacation spot because the water in PR is not as great at other Caribbean Islands. I will not return.

This was a very unique place, wonderful for day with family with children. Water was beautiful, relatively shallow, and fun. You could actually imagine you were on Gilligan's Island from the old TV show. Be sure to take your snacks and drinks - none are available on the island. When we went, it was quiet, uncrowded and peaceful. Hope to... More

This is the best mini island near to the cost of Guanica, Puerto Rico. You most go in a boat or kayak or event in a mini ferry that operate in the area. Shallow waters, clear and warn. Beautiful peace of land to share the day on. If you are stain at the Copa Marina Hotel they have a boat... More

I've been here on several occasions during the past few years. The beach is beautiful and the currents are fun to swim through. Last time was in June 2015 and it was a bit of a shock as I went on a weekday (which are usually the best since you don't have to deal with the crowds). The island was... More

This island has the clearest water I've ever seen. It was as warm as bath water. Now that I think of it, I didn't even feel any chill walking and diving into the water, that's how comfortable it was. There were tropical fish swimming around, make sure you bring snorkeling gear and some water shoes. There were massive, 5ft Iguana's... More

Gilligan's Island was a pretty decent place for snorkeling and lounging in the water. It's not the best place I've snorkeled, but the water was still really clear and there were some really fun fish. The two downsides for Gilligan's Island were the crowds and the broken coral pieces on the ocean floor. We got to the island by 11... More

Guilligan Island is a beatiful island. You have to take a boat to get to the reserve. The limit the amount of people that can go. Plan to be there before 7:30am if you want to make it. If not, you can find a private boat to take you there. They charge $7 per person and cooler. Take your scuba... More

MUST!!!!!! Visited Gilligan's Island as a day trip and have been surprised by how beautiful it is! So much nature and the waters are so clear. By my amazement I had fish swimming all around my legs! All I did was walk into the water and there they were! You don't even need to think about this, just do it!

Great place to visit if visiting the Copamarina resort. It cost 8 dollars each for a round trip boat ride. Take your own water, snacks and a towel . Mangrove trees growing out of the water. if you have a snorkel set up, you can see the local fish swimming around the tree roots. Plan on staying for an hour... More
