Did you know...

... that Puerto Rico has over 270 miles of beaches? It's not just the sheer volume of beachfront that makes Puerto Rico a favorite Caribbean destination, but the quality and variety. Around the island you can find beaches with unusual black magnetic sand, beaches in secluded spots, public beaches and those along resort-front property, and those known for surfing. Puerto Rico has a tremendous selection of beaches, and you should be able to find one that suits you perfectly!
