Fajardo, Puerto Rico
Colorá Beach is a beautiful and rarely frequented beach located on the northeast coast of the island of Puerto Rico in the municipality of Fajardo. Since there is a short walk to get to the beach, most people don’t bother to go, making this beach a great “getaway” spot. It is a walk that is worth venturing since at the end of the walk you will find a beautiful beach, with a perfect view, little frequented and a place where you can enjoy in privacy.
The beach is known as Colorá Beach “Red Beach” because of the reddish tone of its sand. The waters of this beach are crystal clear but most of the time it is rough so caution should be exercised.
The beach has large black rocks flanking the beach, which helps to keep it protected from view. On the other side you can see the historic lighthouse.
To get to the beach, you have to park at Seven Seas Beach. You walk all its shore to the left until the end. Then from there you will find a path between the mangroves that will guide you. The walk takes around 15 minutes to get there. Along the way you will also find Playa Escondida which is separated from Playa Colorá by a small peninsula called Cabeza Chiquita.
The beach is suitable for swimming and some water sports, it is recommended to bring everything you need to stay on the beach as it does not have sanitary facilities or lifeguards.
