Boqueron State Forest

Boqueron State Forest is located along the southwestern shoreline of Puerto Rico along the Caribbean Sea just east of the small beach town of Boqueron. The state forest contains both wetlands rich with mangroves as well as beaches with palm trees along both shorelines and on small islands just of the coast.

The area provides impressive bird watching as well as some great sandy beaches, particularly near the city of Boqueron. In addition, there are the typical beach side activities of lounging on the beach, boating, kayaking, swimming, snorkeling, diving, and beach combing. Note that it is illegal in Puerto Rico to set up camp on a public beach, but there are beach side cabins available for rent. On the weekends and holidays, the more popular beach areas can get crowded, but at other times you may find a bit more solitude.
