Punta Pozuelo

Located in a small little community surrounded by a protected forest, Punta Pozuelo Beach is a great location for any fan of nature or quiet. Beach visitors can walk the coast and take a look at the old town here, as well as the wild mangroves that claim the area opposite the beach.

Set toward the center of the island of Puerto Rico, Punta Pozuelo is on the South East coast of the island, You should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying very close. Those of you who might prefer a beach that's a little less crowded, but still fun and active, may want to give Punta Pozuelo a try. It's just slightly removed from the center of it all, but it's not dead and empty either.

Amenities and Ambiance

While there is not much sand between where the beach starts and where the water starts, Punta Pozuelo is very long, and those up for it can walk as far as they want. The further south along the beach you go, the more and more natural it gets, with houses and roads turning into trees and small lagoons.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, so if you're visiting with small children you might want to consider a different location.

If you find that you like shores that offer visitors a relaxing place to escape, then you may want to try Punta Pozuelo; it's hidden away in a much quieter section of the region.
