Escondida Beach is a beautiful beach located in Fajardo, in the Natural Reserve Ecological Corridor of the Northeast of Puerto Rico. The beach is ideal to spend a quiet day by the sea or family picnic. The water is clear, calm and shallow that makes you be in a true paradise away from the hustle and bustle.

Despite its beauty, it is dangerous due to its strong currents. It is not suitable for swimming. It is recommended that you enjoy your shore and do not go beyond. Near the shore there is a small reef where many practice and enjoy snorkel.

To get to this beach you must park at the facilities of the Seven Seas beach in Fajardo. Walk all your shore to the left until the end. Then from there you will find a path between the mangroves that will guide you to the beach. The walk will take around 15 minutes to arrive. Along the way you will also find Colora Beach which is separated from Escondida Beach by a small peninsula called Chiquita head.

This beach area is a long stretch of golden sand and heavy color. You can walk to the left or right to find the right place. On the right, there is a “hill” rock where there are trails that will take you up the hill of rock. From there you can see Luquillo and El Yunque.  On the left, there are the other beaches;  Finca el Convento and the Govenor Beach, where you will see the holiday home of Puerto Rican politicians.
