Punta Borinquen Beach
Aguadilla, Puerto Rico
Punta Borinquen Beach is an extensive coastal area, which houses three main attractions, Las Ruinas del Faro La Ponderosa, the Borinquen Beach area and Wilderness Beach. Each of these three places has its own charms and singularities. The beach is located in the area of Malleza Baja in Aguadilla.
And if the tide is low, you can walk about 10 minutes along the rock, right next to it you will find some small “caves”. You can park at Punta Borinquen Beach and walk to the left (facing the sea) and you will find Las Ruinas del Faro la Ponderosa. These ruins are spectacular for taking photos and contemplating the landscape. It should be noted that the ruins can also be reached by car.
Punta Borinquen beach is an example of why one can never stop exploring the beautiful island of Puerto Rico.
This beach is family friendly, ideal for boogie board and enjoy the sun, its white sand and beach water sports. If you want to explore, you will be fascinated to walk about 15 minutes to the right of this beach (through the stones) until you reach the Wilderness area. In this area the stone bridges and the sea come together to give us a landscape that is simply spectacular.
Although you have to walk until you reach this beach, once there, you will enjoy the beautiful landscape and the clean sandy beach. As with all the beaches in this region, this beach is in the Atlantic, so the waves are large and care must be taken. It is a good place to go if you just want to relax and listen to the waves with very few people around.
If you want to enjoy an open beach, beautiful views and a picnic with the sea breeze, then this beach is perfect for you. Located just a few hundred meters from the ancient ruins of the lighthouse, this beach is a great place to have lunch under palm trees or in the sand while enjoying this beautiful area. It is a large beach, with parking on both sides of the beach.
To get to the beach, you have to go through an active golf course, just drive along the road until you see the water and the beach sign. There is a large paved parking lot. You can’t miss the open sandy beaches on both sides of the parking lot. On the right you can walk to the beautiful rock formations and on the left, you can walk almost to the ruins. Up in the trees on the right, you will find picnic tables. On the left you will find some sea crystals and shells on the beach on the left.
How to get to the beach
From Route 2 in Aguadilla, take Highway 107 North. When you arrive at Rafael Hernández airport on your right, look for the end of the runway. Facing this on your left, you will see a path that crosses the golf course. Follow that path until you reach Punta Borinquen Beach.
