Best beaches for relaxing

Puerto Rico's hundreds of miles of coastline make it the perfect place to scuba dive, paddleboard, surf, and even boat through our island's tropical waters.

Boat your way through the passages of La Parguera or the incredible blue sights of Punta Arenas in Vieques and be enchanted by Puerto Rico’s Caribbean waters.
