Beaches in Guánica

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. 

Which Beaches Are Available?

You'll discover several beaches to consider in and around the area. For more information concerning a single beach just click on the names of the ones you're interested in.

Tamarindo 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.

Another location to consider is Manglillos Beach. Backed by the dry forest and line with trees and brush, Manglillos features clear, calm, turquoise waters with mangroves, and soft, blindingly white sand.

Ballena Beach: Access is available off PR-333.
