You may have heard tell that Rincon is the "Surf Capital of the Caribbean."  While this is true, not everyone who visits this laid-back town is there to try and ride to shore on a board.  With eight miles of shoreline that cover both the east and south coasts of the island, each beach is unique, and depending on the time of year each beach could be good for different purposes.  Over-all, you can expect to find shorter, smaller beaches that are more intimate than your typical resort beach.  Surfers, stick to the east coast during the winter months.  Everyone else, the Caribbean coast is your best bet. 

Beach Choices In The Area

You will discover several beaches to enjoy in the area. For a detailed guide to a single beach you can click on the names of the ones you'd like to learn about.

Rincon Beach

Domes Beach: Set between the Rincon Lighthouse and the inactive Nuclear Reactor of Puerto Rico (called the "Dome"), Domes Beach is one of the best surfing beaches in Puerto Rico. Swimming is not recommended due to the strong currents, sharp rocks, and pointy sea urchins, but many vacationers head this way to beach comb and watch as islanders test the waves.

Another alternative to consider is Corcega Beach. Corcega Beach is located just off PR 429.

Indicators: Indicators Beach is located on the western tip of Puerto Rico, just south of Lighthouse Park. This beach has rough waters that make it less than ideal for swimmers, but surfing and beach combing are popular pastimes here.
