Places To Visit In Puerto Rico

Shacks Beach

Shacks Beach
March 2nd, 2015

Ask a random group of tourists in Puerto Rico about the beaches they’ve visited, and in all likelihood none of them will mention Shacks Beach. In fact, very few may have even heard of the place.

It’s unfortunate that the place isn’t all that famous yet, but actually that’s not such a bad thing (at least for you). Now that you are reading this article, you’ll know something that a lot of tourists don’t. Even tourists who visit Isabela may not have heard of this beach even though it’s in the area. It’s actually close to Aguadilla.

But among those who have gone to visit Shacks Beach, it’s a real hit. You can just park on Route 4466, then walk down a very narrow road heading to Villa Tropical. That’s where the entrance to the beach is.

Snorkeling

First you need to find the areas where there are rocks and corals. There are some rocks near the shore which beginners can get to easily, but there’s only a handful of fish there. You can go deeper into the sea until you see the next rocky area, and that’s where you’ll begin to see a lot more fish. That’s the rule: the deeper you go, the more fish you see. There are reef fish and bait fish galore, plus lots of coral and rock structures. The visibility of the water is excellent, even in winter.




Be careful though, because there’s an area there which is suitable for scuba divers, as the drop can get as deep as 30 feet or more.

Swimming

For those who like to swim, there are also lots of places here where the waves are calm and the bottom is sandy.

Of course, swimmers tend to like some refreshments afterwards, and the great thing about Shacks Beach is that there are nearby establishments where you can buy some food and drinks. If you’re bringing food to the beach though, make sure you pick up your trash. The beach is quite clean and pristine, and you should keep it that way.

The place is never crowded, and so you’ll get a lot of space for yourself on the shore.

Surfing

The place is probably most famous among surfers and kite surfers, because in some parts of the beach the waves are spectacular. The Shacks break can be very challenging, and many great athletes simply relish the challenge. Besides, the water is almost always very warm.

Staying in Shacks Beach

While Shacks Beach is a great place to visit even if you’re staying in a hotel a few miles away, you may want to think about getting some accommodations right on the Shacks Beach waterfront. From the patio, it’s always nice to just relax while you’re watching the thrilling play and skill of the surfers and kite surfers. And anytime you want to get into the water, you can do so right away.

For some, a visit to Shacks beach is a real slam dunk.
