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.

Beaches

Boqueròn Beach

There are a large number of beaches to choose from, though each of them are found in neighboring areas. You can click on the name of the beach for a detailed guide to that particular stretch of sand.

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.

Another location 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: An array of activities and amenities await visitors to Boqueron Beach. Water sports galore are at your fingertips, along with scuba diving, snorkeling, bike rentals, basketball, and cabin rentals.

These are only some of what's available. For a more detailed look at this specific topic, see this page.
