Often cataloged as a Blue Flag beach, El Escambrón is the perfect spot for family and friends to gather for a day of fun in the sun. This popular beach is protected by coral reefs that make the beach ideal for snorkeling and exploring some of Puerto Rico’s marine life. If snorkeling doesn’t spark your interest, you can walk along the scenic waves. Dubbed a metropolitan beach, El Escambrón is lined by golden sand and tall palm trees that provide shade and is only five minutes away from restaurants and food stands, as well as the Luis Muñoz Rivera Park. There are direct transportation and parking available from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM.
