You won't be without showers, picnic tables, or restrooms at this beach, which means visitors can enjoy these benefits and potentially stay for an entire day.

Happily, the off-shore waters are clear and good for snorkeling, so purchase or rent some gear if you want to do some underwater exploration. Boqueraan Beach is a hot spot for locals and tourists, espcially on weekends and holidays. Weekdays are much less crowded, however, and visitors will find themselves in a peaceful oasis of solitude and serenity.
