We drove from San Juan. It took 2.5 hours. We arrived at 11, we could park 1 min walking from the beach. You can walk in flip-flop from the car. The beach is beautiful, not crowded (Monday) everybody could find shade under the bushes at the shore. It was worth to go there. White sand, shallow, warm water.

Playa Sucia is a hidden treasure for locals and tourists. Yes you have to drive a long way to get there. But once you are there is a paradise. Remember to take everything you need to spend the day; SUNBLOCK,FOOD & DRINKS. There is nowhere near to buy anything. That's why is a hidden treasure. Best thing : you can... More

Forget the taxi or the bus! This jewel is only accessible by the sea or by a tortuous trail that will challenge your off road driving skills!!! The last stretch is your hiking exercise, but once you get there, you would not want to leave. If you complete the journey, don't tell anyone!!! Let's keep the secret!!!

A most beautiful white sand crescent beach with shady trees behind. Unspoilt, no amenities. Can get busy on holidays. Going early in the day is best.

The beach is only about a half-mile long, with stunning turquoise water surrounded by cliffs and a view of the Cabo Rojo lighthouse. It also has a line of trees along the back so that you can either bask in the sun or sit in the shade. Be aware that there are no "amenities," i.e. there are no food kiosks,... More

in a cove and gentle waters, great cliffs surrounding the beach; no facilities nor Kiokos, so bring all your beach gear and food.

It is a special place in Puerto Rico. The beach is really good, not as beautiful as Flamenco in Culebra island but nice. The view from the lighthouse is jaw dropping at sunsets. But bring your own repelent for mosquitos because they invade the area during sunsets hours. It is a far away trip but totally worth it. This means... More

We apparently lucked out. Went on a dry day at low tide. Beach is a long semi-circle and tho there were lots of people, it didn't feel overly crowded (it was a Mon. during the Christmas/3 Kings holiday.) Water was perfect temp and not too rough. And the view of the cliffs were lovely. Afterwards, a short hike brought us... More

We spent the whole day here, about a 45 minute drive from Parguera, soooo worth it!! Beautiful, clean beach, warm ocean (in December!), and gorgeous views. I hope to go back some day!!

This secret discovery made our day!!!! The white sand and the blue beach was such a sight - made us forget the scorching sun and the tiredness! Too bad we didn't come prepared to take a dip.. :(
