Most agree that outside of the dry forest reserve, the beaches are the main reason to visit Guanica. Flat, soft white sand shores sweep out to the ocean which laps ashore calmly. Unfortunately only one of the beaches here has on-site facilities and it isn't open to the public regularly, so make sure to bring your own supplies.
You'll find a large selection of beaches to enjoy in and around the area. Just click on the name of the beach to read a detailed article concerning that particular beach.
Rosado Beach: While the beach is still located inside a community, a wall of trees does help block out some of the buildings and the road. However, even if the trees did not, the area is no San Juan, and is quiet enough not to disturb anyone napping on the beach.
A second alternative worth considering is Manglillos Beach. To get to Manglillos Beach, take Route 325 until is dead ends, then turn east, and drive along the shore until you reach the beach.
Ballena Beach: Access is available off PR-333.
