Beloved for it peace, quiet, and seclusion, the attractions most frequented by tourists who stay in La Parguera are actually located outside of city limits.  If you've got a rental car or access to a taxi or tour bus, you can easily visit a nice selection of parks, nature preserves, and beaches.


Boqueròn Beach

You will discover several beaches to visit, though all of them are located in neighboring areas. Just click on the name of each beach for detailed information about that section of the coast.

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.

Another place that beach-goers can consider is 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.

Boqueròn Beach: Most southbound side roads in Boqueron lead to the beach.
