Boqueron is a small village on the southwest coast of Puerto Rico. At least for tourists, the main attraction is the public beach, which is managed by the government. It is one of the most spectacular beaches on the island, and has obtained world wide recognition -- including being awarded blue flag status by the Foundation for Environmental Education.
You'll find a handful of beaches to choose from in and around the area. You can click on specific beach names for more information concerning that section of the coast.
Combate Beach: Located in the small fishing village of El Combate, Combate Beach is a favorite amongst locals, especially the younger crowd, and it can be crowded. Still, the family-friendly amenities and calm waters make it worth braving the crowds.
A second alternative to consider is Bahia Sucia Beach. Although Bahía Sucia translates to mean "Dirty Bay," this little stretch of paradise could not be more clean and beautiful. In fact, this beach is so popular amongst locals that it is recommended that you avoid it on weekends and holidays.
Cabo Rojo Beaches: Cabo Rojo's location along the south west coast means that the waters fed into its beaches come from the Caribbean Sea. This makes each beach great for families, since the waters are almost always calm and the sand is soft.
