Places To Visit In Puerto Rico

Combate Beach

Combate Beach
March 2nd, 2015

There are a lot of advantages to visiting smaller beaches in Puerto Rico. For one thing, a small beach gives you an impression of a village that has hole-in-the wall restaurants, souvenir and specialty shops, food carts of local delicacies, and a veritable assortment of people who have one thing in common: love of sun, sand, and sea.

Combate Beach is like that. Scenic, welcoming, and friendly, this beach is in Playa El Combate in the municipality of Cabo Rojo. “Combate” is Spanish for battle so the literal translation of Combate Beach is Battle Beach, an irony and a far cry from the serene countenance of the place that can be teeming with fishermen, pelicans, sunbathers, food vendors, and children building sand castles even before lunch.




With no entrance fees, Combate Beach is perfect for picnics in gazebos, of which there are numerous or lounging on beach chairs on golden yellow sand while listening to calming waves from turquoise. The use of the picnic tables is free and you have the option of diving into the water from the small pier. Those of you who have small kids will appreciate the toilets at this beach.

The beach is not in an area where there is consistently heavy foot traffic, something that won’t exasperate you from looking for a piece of personal space to put your beach towel on and because relatively fewer people come here, you have a really good chance to have the peace and solitude you came here for. Additionally, amenities are kept clean and are better maintained because of fewer users.

There are other activities near the beach in which you can engage if snorkeling, swimming, fishing, and other water sports are not your thing. There is the historic Cabo Rojo Lighthouse, the Museo Historico de Las Piedras, the Lunas Art and Craft Art Gallery, the Club Depotivo del Oeste golf course, and the wildlife reserve and nature sanctuary La Perguera Nature Reserve.

And if you would rather eat in restaurants than have a cookout, food establishments are a-plenty near the Combate Beach vicinity such as Galloway’s, Tattoo Café, The Spot Sandwiches, Pika-Pika Restaurant, 8 Track Bar & Grill, Pizzeria Lykken, Agua al Cuello, Roberto’s Fish Net, Miski Mikuna, the Sandbox Custom Burgers Bar And Grill, Simple, and Terramar Restaurant.

As to accommodations, the area is not known to have major hotels nearby but smaller lodgings are clean, reasonably-priced, and will suit the needs of a vacationing family or singles taking the weekend off from work. Closest accommodations to Combate Beach are the Wildflowers Hotel, the Bahía Salinas Beach Resort & Spa, and the Boqueron Beach Hotel Cabo Rojo.

How to Get There

When you get past the restaurant called Annie’s Place, just follow Route 3301 where you will find a parking lot for Combate Beach visitors, free of charge, flanked by mini markets and food stands. If you prefer something else not offered, you can always try other beaches like Boqueròn Beach, which is not so far from El Combate. Colorful and quaint Boqueraan Beach offers various activities to engage in and out of the turquoise waters.
