Añasco Beach – Puerto Rico

Rating: ★★★★☆

Just outside the town of Añasco lies this peaceful tropical beach. There are no facilities awaiting for you here, but if relax away from crowds is what you’re looking for, then this beach is perfect for you. Water is usually calm and hence good for swimming. The tropical environment is really suggestive (perfect environment for great pictures) and offers a good location for a day at the beach to relax, near to both Rincon and Añasco, but far away from crowds. Suggested to families and couples.

Domes Beach – Rincon – Puerto Rico

Rating: ★★★★½

Domes Beach, Rincon, Puerto RicoA very popular beach among surfers (and boogie-boarders alike) is Domes Beach, which owes its name to the nearby hemispherical facility, very visible from the beach. Once the designated land for this nuclear reactor built in the 1960s by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, it is now a main surfer morning attraction. Due to moderate current, some rocks and sea urchins it is probably not the best place for swimming or snorkeling. If you’re into whatever kind of activity related to good surf though, this one is definitely the beach for you. There are no bathrooms or other facilties on the beach, but the lighthouse and its bar are within walking distance, contributing to creating an even more interesting environment. Just bring your bug spray, some drinks and snacks and you’ll have fun.

Oprna bay in Stara Baska – Island of Krk

Rating: ★★★★½

At about 10 km south of Punat, lies famous Oprna Bay, one of the most prominent and beautiful beaches of the island of Krk. This 120m wide, remote pebbly beach has some of the clearest waters and best unspoiled environments that you might experience, so it’s definitely suggested for a day at the beach. It’s not very easy to reach it, since you have to follow a pretty long and steep downhill trekking path. Once you’re there, some fun and relax are guaranteed though. Immersed into nature you’ll be able to sunbathe, swim, snorkel or even play some beach sports. The bay also offers some good snorkeling opportunities in its shallow, calm waters.

Unnamed Bay near Stara Baska (Island of Krk)

Rating: ★★★★☆

At about 10 km south of Punat, right between famous Oprna Bay and the Škrila camping site in Stara Baska, lies this unnamed pebbly beach, where a good day at the beach (and some good trekking) are both guaranteed. You can sunbathe, swim or snorkel within this unspoiled environment. There are no shops, bars or facilities around, so that you have to make sure you bring everything you need before you get there. If you forget something, you might be lucky enough to find it at the nearby camping site, but it’s still going to cost a good 30 min walk uphill and downhill again, so that you probably want to make sure you have anything you need, before you descend to the beach in first place.
