Beaches in Rio San Juan

Rio San Juan's beaches promote a romantic atmosphere thanks to their quiet nature, soft sands, and gently rolling waves.  Because this town is not a top tourist destination, it is easy to find stretches of sand which are nearly deserted, which warrants a word of caution about swimming alone.

Which Beaches Are Available?

You will discover a large selection of beaches to enjoy in and around the area. Just click on individual names to get additional information about that beach.

Playa Rio San Juan

Rogelio Beach: Rogelio Beach features tan colored sand and deep aquamarine waters. The beach is dotted with palm trees, lounge chairs, and umbrellas, and just off shore is a coral reef that protects the coast, keeping strong waves at bay.

A second location worth considering is Grande Beach. The sands of Grande Beach are a soft pink color, and the beach is lined with trees in a way that keeps the beach pretty shady.

Preciosa Beach: Preciosa Beach is set just off Highway 5. Exit the highway at a dirt road where you can park in a clearing after the trees.

Check out the chart below for more information on beaches located in and around the area.
