This is the private beach of EL Conquistador Resort. Bring your flip flops, swim clothing, sun screen and appetite for nice burgers!

The ride to the beach was great, but the facilities at the beach were fairly basic. For such a huge resort, they can put in some additional investment to spruce up this island that has so much more potential!

This island is beautiful and thanks to the association with the El Conquistador resort it is loaded with amenities and things to do. Bring cash and a credit card as all of the activities and rentals are for an extra fee for note, guests.

Absolutely love this island. Can only be accessed through private charter or through ferry from El Conquistador Resort. Beautiful, serene, crystal clear waters, white sand and tons of activities you could do including snorkeling, horseback riding, jet skiing, adventure walking, kayaking and my favorites eating and drinking. Cool little restaurant on the island with good food and drinks. Even when... More

I would like to take the opportunity to warn those who get seasick that even though I took dramamine and wore sea bands, the last 5 minutes of the ferry trip to the island made me seasick. (The ride back was fine.) The island itself is pleasant but nothing exceptinal. There is a strip of good snorkeling but it is... More

Off the west coast of PR, a place to picnic, dive and snorkel. Close to other smaller islands and reefs. Many options for cruises, rentals close by in the mainland marinas.

It took me 2.5 hours to walk around+swim around. Restaurant at beach, a lot of other activities for kids and adults. The island, except private beach has public beach as well, but... More

Stayed at El Conquistador with family. Excellent hotel in Las Casitas. Jet skis, Kayaks, Hobie cat, food and drinks. Excellent snorkeling and hiking. Can rent horses for a small yet beautiful ride. Bring lots of water to sty hydrated.
