Sandy Beach

Sandy Beach
January 20th, 2015

One of the more interesting features of Puerto Rico beaches is that in general they all have interesting names. You’ve got beaches with names like Zoni and Flamenco, which makes you wonder what they’re all about.

Then you have truly descriptive names which help set a particular beach apart, such as Steps Beach named after the concrete steps on the shore and the stunning Blue Beach where everything everywhere seems to be an explosion of all shades of blue.

So it’s understandable when you encounter a name like Sandy Beach and you’re not exactly intrigued. Is that it? It’s sandy? Of all the names they can give a beach to grab the attention of tourists, all they could settle on is Sandy?

But the name isn’t as silly as you may think at first.

Surfing at Sandy Beach

The name makes much more sense when you realize that Sandy Beach is actually one of the best surfing beaches in Rincon, Puerto Rico. Suddenly the emphasis on how sandy it is illuminates one very important consideration for surfers. A beach named Sandy Beach is, after all, a tad more inviting than a beach called Sharp Rocks Beach, doesn’t it?

The bottom of the beach is all sand along with some flat rock reef. That makes Sandy Beach one of the friendliest beaches in all of Rincon, as the other locations feature sharp coral on the sea floor. When the wind blows from the south, the waves are great and you can catch some very good ones indeed.




Even beginner surfers will love it here. For the kids, the beach break is quite suitable for body surfing too.  For those who want to start learning how to surf, there are several surf schools in the area, and they can provide you with the equipment you need as well. For more advanced surfers you don’t need lesson but you’ll need surfboards, which you can rent from the surf shops as well.

Other Attractions

If you just like to swim, then that’s not a problem either. Sometimes the water can make it hard to swim, as the waves can get really rough while the current can be quite strong. But it becomes much easier to swim when the mostly Northeastern and Eastern are blowing because the current is no longer as strong.

The beach is wide and pretty, so there’s no problem there if your main goal is to relax. It’s a pretty relaxed atmosphere all around. There are no vendors on the beach itself, so you don’t have to get upset because no-one’s bothering you to buy something.

But if you do need to buy something, then you’ll have no difficulties at all. There are nearby bars and restaurants so your food and drink requirements are covered. One bar has a deck overlooking the sea. Food options are excellent as well, and you should really try the taco truck nearby.  You can also eat by the beach, if you bring your own food and you can rent the chairs, tables and umbrellas you need.

Good surfing and good food, with a scenic setting and a friendly atmosphere—these are what Sandy Beach is all about.
