The various characteristics of each coastal spot in Puerto Rico could be better suited for a romantic stroll than a family outing, or vice versa. The following table displays the options located near Hotel el Faro. Clicking on each link below allows you to learn about amenities and other details:

The most convenient option is Crash Boat Beach. Keep in mind that this beach is a reasonable distance off, so your party won't have to journey far to enjoy this beautiful section of the coast. The site of a former military port that was used as a jumping off point for rescuing air crews, Crash Boat Beach was aptly named for this history. Some of the pier infrastructure remains from this time, though those who aren't aware of the history call it an eyesore.

If you're interested in a more secluded and private beach scene, The Shacks is an alternative worth considering. Not far from some major tourist areas, The Shacks has been able to keep a low profile despite its very large beach and relatively easy access. Being located right where the Atlantic Ocean turns into the Caribbean Sea, this beach has a nice hybrid of clear Caribbean Waters and rough Atlantic Waves. It's situated only a short distance off.
