Top Surf Spots of Puerto Rico

Surf spots

The lively island of Puerto Rico offers plenty of surf opportunities for those craving solid waves. Airfare from most major cities in the continental U.S. is reasonable, and since Puerto Rico is an American territory, no passport is required to enter. Surfers: no need to pay the extra airline fees to bring your board.

 

There are places to rent boards at most of the major surf spots on the island. If you’re traveling with non-surfing companions, they will find no shortage of activities in the touristy areas of San Juan and Rincon.

 

Less touristy Piñones is a great place to munch on authentic Puerto Rican cuisine and mingle with the locals hanging out on the beach and watching experienced surfers do their thing.

 

La Ocho

 

The best place to catch some waves in Puerto Rico’s capital city (San Juan) is at La Ocho, located between the Condado and the Old Town. There is a surf shop located across the street from the public beach that rents boards at reasonable prices. Locals come here to catch some waves on their lunch breaks, and it is popular with tourists as well.

 

Piñones

 

Piñones is located just outside of San Juan, can be reached by car traveling along Route 187 (that runs parallel to Puerto Rico's north coast, connecting San Juan and Loíza). There is a popular surf break in Piñones called Aviones (Airplanes) because it offers great views of the planes taking off from Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport.

 

Rincon

 

Located on the western side of the island, Rincon boasts some of the best beach breaks in the world. There are plenty of resorts and rental shops to make your stay more comfortable and convenient. Overall prices tend to be less expensive than those in San Juan. There are also several surf schools here to help beginners learn to ride the waves.
