Quebradillas literally means “small streams,” and the waterways that run through this northwest coast town is a great place to start your exploration of the area's outdoor attractions.  Nature stars here, as the town is home to one of the island's forest reserves, within which there are over 40 hiking trails alone; a man made lake which also has a carefully constructed hiking trail; and a coast lined with beaches that are not only great for swimming, but for seashell hunting as well.

Guajataca Beach: Guajataca Beach is located off Highway 2 as you head from Isabela to Quebradillas. To get to the beach, park off the road and walk the coastal trail through an abandoned train tunnel.
