Corcega Beach

The town of Rincon is known in Puerto Rico as the place you go to surf. The beaches along this stretch of coast feature rougher waters perfect for the sport. Corcega Beach, however, is set further south than many other Rincon beaches, and the waters are much more calm. If you have young children, this is the Rincon Beach to bring them to.

Located on the island of Puerto Rico, 2.6 miles south-southeast of Rincón, You should consider dropping by even if you aren't staying in the immediate vicinity. While Puerto Rico has beaches that are more secluded than Corcega Beach, it has the right combination of charm and personality to attract visitors who need a place to relax.

How to Access The Beach
Corcega Beach is located just off PR 429.

Amenities and Ambiance

The soft, tan sands of Corcega Beach stretch on seemingly for miles as the beautiful turquoise waters lap the shore. Out at sea there is reef just 50 yards off shore, while back on land a cement boat on a small rock cliff serves as a local landmark.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, which is something to consider if you're bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside.
