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 place to consider is Seven Seas Beach. Seven Seas Beach is located off Carretera Cabezas de San Juan.
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.
