Reviewed 23 October 2013

We drove all the way out here from San Juan (a little over an hour thanks to crazy rain on the way) and when we get there facilities are closed, there's a bunch of construction on the street, and none of the food kiosks are open. We tried going inside and finding a place to lay down even for a little but there was too much crap on the sand from trees. This beach is obviously not being maintained. You're better off taking the ferry to Culebra or Vieques or driving 20 minutes to Luquillo Beach.

There's a couple of rocks and coral around so water shoes are definitely advised. Otherwise-Lively during the weekend, spectacular views and calm waters. thumbs uppp.

Seven Seas Beach was a good second-choice spot to spend our last day in Puerto Rico. My husband and I were supposed to go sailing/snorkeling, but the weather had been iffy all week and our charter was cancelled. So we decided to drive from San Juan out to Luquillo to see if we could do some snorkeling there. The drive was about 50 minutes, and it was easy to find. It's not THE prettiest beach we had ever seen, but we definitely enjoyed it. The grounds were clean, the water was calm and clear enough, and we were able to do some really easy off-shore snorkeling here to see some cute fish and plants. It wasn't amazing snorkeling, but perfect for beginners or kids. The rocks and coral are right off the shore, towards the right side of the whole beach if you're facing the ocean.

Note: We couldn't seem to find an open restroom - the main ones right near the entrance were locked. It was off-season (September), so maybe they aren't open all year. Just be prepared that facilities might not be available if it's not peak season! The parking was still about $5 though.

After missing the ferry to Culebra, we found this beach and we were so glad we did. We paid 5$ to park and walked across the street to the beach. There are trees for shade and put your blankets under. The water is crystal clear. The best part of the beach is there is a reef further out that blocks the waves and the water is so calm. People actually had their chairs and umbrellas in the water. It was like being in heated tropical pool. Great place to snorkel and kayak. The surrounding view was gorgeous. The lighthouse is also located on this beach but you will need a reservation for a tour.

A protected beach with gentle waves that were great for snorkel practice and families with small children. Trees at beach side offer excellent shade so no need to bring a beach umbrella. The water isn't crystal clear, so you don't see much during the snorkeling...at least right in the main beach area, but we didn't do a lot if exploring so maybe there are better spots that we didn't know about. Enjoyed the experience but probably will look elsewhere for better snorkeling opportunities in the future.
