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'll find an abundance of beaches to consider, although they are all located in neighboring areas. Click on each beach name for a detailed article concerning that section of the coast.

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.

A second alternative to 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: Boqueron Beach is situated in southeast Puerto Rico, in the quaint waterfront town of Boqueron. The sandy white beach is over a mile long and borders sparkling turquoise waters.

These are just a few of the options. Click to visit our article about beaches for La Parguera.

Natural Attractions

Bosque Estatal De Boquerón

Bosque Estatal De Boquerón is one of the more popular natural attractions. Bosque Estatal Boqueron, also known as the Boqueron State Forest, is well known in Puerto Rico for the many birds in the area, and the beautiful beaches that line the shore.

Another local attraction that provides a nice way to spend some time outdoors is Punta Pitahaya Nature Area. Part of the greater Boqueron State Forest (known locally as Bosque Estatal de Boqueron), the Punta Pitahaya is one of the prime spots in the state forest and the island to catch a close look at the wildlife and nature of Puerto Rico. With the quality of the nature experience and the relative ease of access, the Punta Pitahaya is a prime location for eco-tourist and nature lovers.
