Places To Visit In Puerto Rico

Brava Beach

February 27th, 2015

One of the more popular reasons why people go to the beach is to watch other people. It’s nice to relax while you watch beach lovers surf, swim, or play games. Plus you get a nice tan in the process.

But sometimes you want a beach all to yourself or at least only to your group. Well, if this is the case, then going to Playa Brava, also known as Brava Beach is something you have to try. This is one of the most private beaches in Puerto Rico, and that’s not because there’s tight security in the entrance.




Getting to Brava Beach

One of the reasons why this beach is almost always deserted is that you can’t just come here easily. It will involve a moderately difficult hike.

To get to Brave Beach, you need to get to Road 250 and then make a turn at the Culebra Museum. You follow that road until the end, where you’ll find a couple of gates. One of the gates has this “no pase” sign, and this gate should be the one which goes the same direction when you came in. Despite the sign, it’s apparent that no one obeys the sign, and the trail has seen lots of use.

The hike is going to take some time, although half an hour is average. Just make sure you get all the hiking and beach provisions with you, and that includes wearing sneakers instead of flip-flops when you hike. Insect repellant is also going to be very useful here, along with a canister of water.

The distance of the hike seems to differ depending on the hiking skill of the visitor. One will say that it’s just three-fourths of a mile, while to others it feels approximately 2 miles. Going to the beach is mostly going downhill. Some find the hike easy, but others tell of more forbidding accounts.

In any case, be forewarned if you aren’t a patient hiker. This journey is just one reason why the beach seems deserted all the time.

Beach Conditions

Once you get there, you’ll also quickly realize that this is not a great beach for swimming, especially if you’re not an expert swimmer. Remember this is a beach on the northern shore, and the waves can be fierce. In addition, the undertow can be very strong. Getting back to shore when you’ve drifted too far can be a problem.

But then again, you can enjoy Brava Beach simply by just being here. Look around—there aren’t any people. At the most, there’s going to be a handful, but that’s about it.

So if the beach isn’t ideal for swimming and the hike can be difficult, why are all the reviews so positive? Again, that’s because it’s one beach that gives you privacy, so you can have a beach all to yourself. And besides, it’s pretty here too.

And who knows? Maybe those who have warned you about the terrible hike and unpleasant surf conditions simply want you to stay away, so that Brava Beach will remain secluded and private.
