There was nothing to see here. Horrible. I don't know why anyone would recommend it. The place is run down, and it was dirty. The bathroom is a latrine full of flies and the stentch was insane. There are no other facilities which is scary. There was no beach. It was dirt and then you kind of jumped into the... More

I am not a fan of waves and have small children and this beach delivers. The water for the most part is not deep and with no waves and clear waters it is great for the family. Make sure you bring everything with you because you can't buy anything once you get on the boat. Consider wearing water shoes as... More

We decided to check out Gulligan's island after a tip from a guy we met while diving the Wall. We arrived on a Friday morning to the Ferry at 830am. The best thing to do is take the main road 116 into guanica, find the econo supermarket to buy goodies. Then find route 333 and take it all the way... More

The personnel is not friendly. You have to wait for the ride until they sell 42 tickets, so maybe you can wait until 1.5 hours. The ride to the island is just no more than 10 minutes. The only things that they care is sell food.

A few friends and I decided to check out Gilligan's Island to see if the hype was true. We arrived early (about 7 am) to avoid long lines. They do limit the number of people allowed there per day so make sure you are early. The tickets are under $8 round trip and coolers are an extra $6. The ferry... More

great for kids. A lot of options to get there, by ferry, by hired boat or your boat. keep the area clean and be careful with the mangroves - they are a very delicate ecosystem

Came in the off season. We brought our three dollar floaties from target, hopped on them, took our rum and pineapple drinks, and floated down on the natural lazy river, with mangroves on both sides. A *really* great way to spend a day for travelers on a budget.

How to get there: well that is... More

Do your homework and get a private boat ride for $10/person, it's very simple to get there and back. It's a great place to go and have a quiet piece of beach all to yourself. The natural currents are very exciting and the water temperature is excellent. I'm looking forward to going back again.
