Boqueron Beach

Boqueron Beach
March 2nd, 2015

Yet another long beach in Puerto Rico is Balneario Boquerón, located just off Route 101W, with soft sand, trees, gazebos, a cafeteria, restrooms, a playground, picnic tables, facilities for the handicap, and nearby lodging. The showers are located outdoors; rinse showers are set up along the beach, and the yellow building is where you can find restrooms. Boquero Beach is considered one of the best Cabo Rojo beaches.




Not All Beaches Have the Blue Flag

This beach village is considered one of southwestern Puerto Rico’s main attractions. According to legend, the pirate Roberto Cofresi hid his loot in one of the caves in Barrio Pedernales south of Boqueron Beach but nobody has ever found any treasure in the area. This public “balneario,” Spanish for beach, has a “blue flag” beach status awarded by the Foundation for Environmental Education.

A blue flag means the beach water’s quality has been tested and has available educational and conservation information, among other things. Lifeguards are on duty in the roped-off, large swimming area. The “Mar Sin Barreras,” which is Spanish for “Sea without Barriers” features access to the ocean for the physically handicapped. The beach also has wheelchair rentals.

One of the Best Inshore Fishing Places on the Caribbean

Boqueron Beach is quite impressive for a government-owned beach and it has clean facilities. This beach is also perhaps the safest choice for small children since there are no waves whatsoever anywhere near Cabo Rojo and especially in Boqueron. For an affordable three to ten dollar fee plus tax, you can have secure parking, a feature that shouldn’t be overlooked by those with families or larger groups with a lot of equipment or gear.

Long known as one of the best inshore fishing places in the Caribbean, Boqueron Beach is ideal for inshore fishing, fly fishing, and light tackle. There are several attractions close to the beach such as the Camuy River Park with over 200 caves that contain awesome rock formations, the Los Morrillos Lighthouse, and the Phosphorescent Bay where water glows in the dark whenever its microorganisms are agitated.

Other Attraction Sites near Boqueron Beach

There is also the Tamarindo Beach that is great for diving and snorkeling because the coral beds and sand are easily reachable from shore. The church of San Germán de Auxerre is worth visiting to see lavishly decorated and richly painted interiors, and intricately fine carvings. For architecture aficionados, the inconspicuous church of Iglesia Porta Coeli is a gem. Porta Coeli is also one of the oldest churches in the New World.

How do you get to Boqueron Beach? Simply turn left on Highway 101 – heading towards the town — and proceed for a quarter-mile along the small, spur road for about a quarter of a mile. Or you can go on foot from your starting point in downtown Boqueron using the footbridge that connects at Calle Jose de Diego’s end. If you want to go to the beach on holidays and weekends start off early so you can get ahead of the crowds.
