In truth, Fajardo is not always visited for its beaches alone, but there are several in town that are more than worth the visit.  These beaches feature calm waves thanks to their location in a natural bay, clean shores backed by tropical palms, and on-shore facilities that include barbecue pits, volleyball nets, and bathrooms.

Which Beaches Are Available?

There are a large number of beaches to consider in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some of the beaches, for visitors who enjoy the underwater scene. For a detailed article concerning a single beach click on the names of the ones you want to learn more about.

Seven Seas Beach

Playa Laguna Aguas Prietas: After miles of forestry, Playa Laguna Aguas Prietas appears as a clearing along the north coast of Puerto Rico. This locale is perfect for visitors who want to enjoy quiet and seclusion.

Another alternative that beach-goers can consider is Seven Seas Beach. Seven Seas Beach is a popular beach for snorkeling around the coral reefs, water sports, and camping in the sand (with a permit). Several nearby islets provide even more opportunities for fantastic snorkeling and local hotels and tour operators give guided land tours.

Playa Colora: Large black rocks flank the beach which helps to keep it protected from sight and some of the reason so few people know about. The view from the orange and tan shore is of the Fajardo Lighthouse.
