A beautuful beach. Not an extensive area of sand but the water is just gorgeous and warm, so easy to stay in the water all day. Also fun to walk up to the lighthouse or to the cliffs on the other side of the cove.

Beautiful beach, but full of literally starving cats everywhere you look. Meowing pitifully for food to anyone and everyone on the beach. Was there chaperoning a high school trip and kids were pretty upset by this to say the least.

Rough road and impossible to reach by foot if you have any type of difficulty walking. The parking was too far from the beach so we didn't stay in the end.

If you plan on going here take a picnic basket, blanket and just relax. Due to the time of year my wife and I went it was very slow with minimal crowds. Such a great place for pictures and swimming and lying on the sand....More

Do plan for a day on the beach before going here because it is absolutely nothing to be bought here in the far end of the national park. Car is a must and the road is in a condition much worse than worse (!) so...More

Not sure the time it closes. It's a public beach, you don't pay to enter beach or light house. No staff on duty.

La Playuela and Playa Sucia are the same beach. The lighthouse is steps away from that same beach. Hope you enjoy Puerto Rico.
