I only wish I got to spend more time at this little gem!!!! It was not over crowded and was in the perfect little cove. It had soft and deep fresh sand, the kind you want to walk in because it has the pretty shells...More

I have visited this beach several times with a scuba diving group. We were always there about 8AM and there was hardly anyone else there. Good time to visit. I don't know how crowded it gets later in the day.

Took a drive and spent the day at this beach. It is absolutely gorgeous. It’s rocky and the waves are rough. But other than that it’s was beautiful clear water and worth the ride there.

If you are outdoors people then I would not suggest basing out of San Juan the whole time. Unnecessary traffic. But you should spend a day In San Juan. It does have ok Beaches and Old San Juan, El Morro etc are not to be missed. I would suggest hitting El Yunque, Taking a hike past the governors House from Seven Seas beach, A night in Vieques and the Bio Bay, Rent a small boat in La Parguera. See the birds, beach and lighthouse at Cabo Rojo. Or follow your itinerary above, hard to go too...More
SJU to Rincon (0 Replies)
Landing on a Sunday, 11am and driving to Rincon. Would like a scenic route with the option to stop and eat, preferably beach side type of kiosk. Really trying to enjoy the island on during the drive. Was also considering stopping at Playa Mar Chiquita, worth the stop?
