Crash Boat Beach

October 8th, 2014

Everything you can ask for when it comes to beaches is in Crash Boat Beach. It has excellent quality sand, clear water, and delicious food – a beach for families, really. You get picnic tables, convenient parking, plenty of shade, and beach chairs and umbrellas for rent.
 
See the Caribbean’s Biggest Modern Theme Park
 
Snorkel, fish, scuba, and swim to your heart’s content at this beach, increasingly becoming popular from the 20 or so beaches in Puerto Rico. Located in the town of Aguadilla, known locally La Villa del Ojo de Agua or “Village of the Water’s Eye,” Crash Boat Beach has more than beaches to offer everyone.
 
There’s the biggest modern theme park in the Caribbean called Parque Acuático Las Cascadas and the ocean deck and viewing tower in EL Merendero from where you can get a panoramic ocean view. Have delectable and amazingly inexpensive food and drink like tostones, pinchos, and piña colada while you’re there.
 
Have You Ever Seen Seagulls Do Tricks?
 
But back to the beach. Families can picnic on tables located in a raised patio on the south side of the beach. Get smoothies and other beverages from a shop called Further North and look out for “the seagull guy.” Watch the seagulls of Crash Boat Beach do tricks and follow commands from the seagull guy. And while you’re at it, he sells exquisite necklaces made from shark teeth, easily the best selling souvenirs.
 
You can go snorkeling in Crash Boat but there’ll be lots of fishermen around. Bring your own snorkeling gear to see coral and other marine life at the old pier of the sugar mill.




South Side is “Sheltered,” North Side is “Rougher”
 
Those who have been to Crash Boat Beach rave about this sand and sea haven. Families can bring their own food to be cooked with their own equipment. If you have small children, the place is perfect for them because the surf at this beach is calmer than the rest that dot Aguadilla.
 
Jet skiing and parasailing are some of the water sports you can indulge in when you’re here. Get ready to pick up colorful, odd-shaped, and unique Caribbean seashells and try jumping off the old dock for a different diving experience.
 
Just remember that the south side is “sheltered” swimming while the north tends to get “rougher.”

Eat, Drink, and Try Out Various Water Sports Activities
 
People have given the beach an excellent rating not only for the turquoise colored water but also for the variety of fresh food and drinks from the numerous food booths such as empanadilla, pinchos, bacalaito, and fruit smoothies called batidas in coconut, mango, banana, and kiwi flavors.
 
The beach has shower rooms and camping is free. If you are looking for professional instructors for kayak, scuba, snorkeling, surfing or even kiteboarding, you will find them at the beach and all you have to do is ask and negotiate for the instructional fee.

The Best Things in Life are Free Here
 
So if you’re ready for a fun-filled, action-packed weekend adventure, schedule a short stay in this beach. Bring diving goggles, swim fins, and a snorkel, of course, to see beautiful corals and a myriad of colorful fish up close in the clear azul water.
 
Although it starts off quietly in the early morning hours, action begins at the beach before noon. Strum a guitar, read a book, get a tan, meet locals, snorkel, surf, swim, build sandcastles, and shoot photos in the crystal clear water, all of these you can do at Crash Boat Beach for free.
