Rosado Beach

Located plenty away from the big Puerto Rican cities, Rosado Beach is still located in a small community that creates a nice mix of remoteness and convenience. The wide arching beach provides a great opportunity for sun bathing and fun in the sun, while the buoyed off swimming area offers a safe place for people of all ages to enjoy the water.

Set on the southwestern edge of the island of Puerto Rico, You might think about stopping by whether or not you are staying in the vicinity. Travelers will find that, though Rosado Beach isn't considered a quiet and secluded part of the coast, it's not the rowdiest beach in Puerto Rico either. It's the perfect choice for families who want to visit a somewhat lively beach but also want to skip out on the crowds.

Amenities and Ambiance

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.

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.
