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.

Situated on the western coast of the island of Puerto Rico, You should consider dropping by regardless of whether you are staying in the immediate vicinity. Puerto Rico's beaches are pretty busy for the most part, but Indicators is a little bit further from the crowds, which makes it an excellent attraction for those of you who don't want to wander too far away, but would rather avoid the most hectic parts of town.

How to Access The Beach
Park at Lighthouse Park and walk down a trail to get to Indicators Beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

Indicators is fringed with spiky palm trees and has a rocky coastline that can make the beach seem uninviting. Still, the tan colored sand is soft and the waters are aquamarine, making it a beauty you won't want to miss seeing.

Please note that public restrooms are not available, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun.

Since Indicators is of course found inside a tourist hotspot, you'll want to plan accordingly.
