Puerto Yabucoa

With the area known for the rich and fertile soil, you can bet that Puerto Yabucoa is a beach shrouded by a wall of trees (much like the rest of the region). This helps give the beach a much more natural feel than it really is; located just steps from from homes, baseball fields, and other marks of civilization. However, the long beach is still a quiet alternative to the city beaches, and the surroundings much more green.

Located in the vicinity of Humacao, Puerto Yabucoa is on the East edge of Puerto Rico. You might think about stopping by whether or not you are staying very close. The area surrounding the beach is not overflowing with tourists, however, the beach itself has plenty of appeal.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun.
