Gilligan's Island, Playa de Guanica

4.3
#12 of 70 in Nature in Puerto Rico
Cross the water to Gilligan's Island and spend time on the island named after the popular TV show. Several mangrove forests surround the island, which nurtures an environment rich in marine life. You will find calm, shallow water with a sandy bottom here; do not forget your snorkeling gear. As a very popular location for locals, the beaches fill up quickly on weekends, so head there early. You will not find shops or restaurants on the island, so take everything you need for the day. Those interested in more secluded beaches can consider renting a kayak from the coast and paddling to the island in an effort to choose your own beach. With our international travel planner, Playa de Guanica attractions like Gilligan's Island can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Every time we go to Puerto Rico my wife and I spend at least a day at Gilligan's Island and we love it there.  more »
  • It is best to visit Gilligan's Island during a weekday morning. This way you will find much peace and quiet. Experience a crystal clear Caribbean beach where you can see tropical fish around your feet...  more »

  • We really enjoyed our day here. The mangroves are beautiful and the shallow water makes it great to just hang out. Make sure to bring everything you need for the day (including toilet paper) as there is nothing on the island except for a composting toilet and a few picnic benches.
  • Great place to visit, just wish people would use the trash cans. They are everywhere so if you visit, clean up after yourself. Even if it's not your trash, pick it up. Make it a point to pick up at least 10 pieces of trash, especially the broken glass bottles, think about the little kids that walk around barefooted. It's not that hard to try to preserve this beautiful island. The corals are all dead so if you are expecting to see lots of sea life, just picture the coral apocalypse. There are some living but they won't last long if we step all over them. You'll see some fish and the water is really calm, no waves at all when we were there. May 10th 2017.
  • So beautiful.
  • A beautiful place. To enjoy family and clear the mind.
