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.
You'll discover several beaches to enjoy in and around the area. Click on each beach name for more information concerning that part of the coast.
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.
Another option to consider is Shacks Beach. The beach is located directly north of the center of the city, Isabela. Taking Calle Emilio Gonzalez north, just keep going north until you are at the beach.
Jabos Beach: Jobos Beach has a quiet beauty and calm setting that can be deceiving. While it is a great locale for strong surfers and sun bathers, the water has a notoriously strong riptide that is known for catching, and even drowning, swimmers.
