Playa Sucia, Cabo Rojo

4.5
Playa Sucia celebrates the Caribbean and nature. Reserve a spot with some shade under a tree and listen to the ocean breeze and waves crashing on the shore. A short hike to the nearby lighthouse grants an unmatched view of the surrounding limestone cliffs and natural bridges. On the beach itself there are no restrooms, nor are there any vendors, so bring your own food and snacks. There also are no lifeguards stationed here, so be sure to supervise children accordingly.

  • This was my 2nd favorite beach while in Puerto Rico. It’s a bit far from San Juan, approx. 3 hours to drive but so worth it! No rocks here, just sand. Parking is free and very close to the beach. Also be sure to hike up the side to see the lighthouse, there is path, if you are in the mood and able to. The views are amazing!
  • I used to come here in the 80's when no one visited and have the entire beach to ourselves!!! Too bad the secret is out!!! It's nice to see human activity here, it's too beautiful to be hidden...
