Awesome spot to see surfing. The scenery surrounding is beautiful. A little tricky to find and rough drive down but very worth it.

This is a gorgeous beach but can be challenging to get to - no parking nearby. Requires a walk down the beach from Surfer's Beach or Shacks beach. Can also be reached by horseback through trails. No toilets/amenities.

Is a great adventure! First you a arrive to Surfers Beach where you can have a relax day. There is hiking trail that takes you to Survival Beach (15 minute walk, tennis shoes recommended). The views, the caves and the beach are amazing!

The hike to Survival Beach was more challenging than anticipated, but worth it! We used google maps to navigate to Surfer's Beach. Navigation brought us to the right area but you have to look for the road heading down to the beach beyond a chain...More

The beach itself is beautiful, quiet and secluded. It suitable for swimming as the choral bottom has been eroded smooth. But beware! The waves can be rough and the undertow severe. Access the beach from the east through the old sand pit. Hint - Drive...More

Survival.......probably the site of survival training during the Ramey Air Force Base era. See also 1963 release of Lord of the Flies....some scenes were filmed at Survival Beach in 1961, and also at Vieques, and El Yunque.
