Humacao Beach is a quiet stretch of sand where visitors can escape for a little piece of paradise.

Located 3.6 miles east-southeast of Humacao, Humacao Beach is on the East coast of Puerto Rico. You should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying particularly close by. If you plan to sunbathe or take a nap on a fairly secluded beach, you shouldn't miss the opportunity to visit Humacao Beach.

How to Access The Beach
Humacao Beach can be found at the end of a long dirt road, off PR-923 just south of the air strip serving Humacao. A four-wheel drive vehicle is recommended.

Amenities and Ambiance

Backed by coconut palms and a small fresh water pool, Humacao has soft tan sand and green waters.

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business.

If you find that you prefer beach days which offer a tranquil enclave, then you should enjoy Humacao Beach; it is tucked away within a more natural area of Puerto Rico.
