Stunning and relaxin place with crystal clear waters. I suggest the week days as it is less crowded. You can rent a kayak or do snorkeling or just chill.

What a sweet find! We had a wonderful day in the water swimming & snorkeling around the mangrove islands with tropical fish the sun on our backs. The rustic picinic area is accessed by a local shuttle boat that drops you off at the pier. There are a couple picnic tables for early arrivals but most just find a shady... More

Great little mangrove area excellent for swimming and snorkeling. Saw more tropical fish here than on the depleted coral reefs of many Caribbean islands. If you're looking for an expansive beach then don't bother to come here as there's not much room to stretch out. The appeal of this place is the water. The ferry service is a bit slow... More

This is clearly a precious site. It is beautiful and serene, but there is no one there to monitor the habitat. People can be so careless and destructive.

We visited this island over Christmas break. It's not easy to get to, and we were convinced we had somehow missed it and needed to turn around, but there were no places to do so, so continued -- and found the turn after all. It's between the 6.8 and 6.9 km marking. We took the 10:30 boat, which carried 42... More

We went to this island by recommendation and we are glad we visit. It is very clean and the water was clear. We snorkel and saw some fishes but not many as I expected. Be aware that there could be a lot of current but it was fun for us. I recommend that you get there very early. We arrived... More

So great beach. Very clear and pleasant atmosphere! It is very close to main island. You should come here when you come to south part of Puerto Rico.
