Gilligan's Island, Playa de Guanica
(4.1/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The island it self was beautiful and mesmerizing. Me and my girl rented a kayak and it was a wonderful experience. We didn't go to the ferry, instead we asked some neighbors and the rented us the kayak. Great and unforgettable day.
  • Beautiful cay had a wonderful time with my family . Get there early to snatch a great spot and bring snorkle gear its worth it
  • Nice snorkeling.. We stayed at Mary Lee's and easily kayaked out to the island in about 20 minutes. Clear water and very little current...
  • Most beautiful beach of PR
  • It really was a very nice place to spend the afternoon. The snorkeling would've been excellent however the place we tried to rent from ran out of gear. It was also very crowded, and this was on a Thursday. I can imagine it would be even worse on the weekend. However we did enjoy watching the multitudes of fish swimming near the mangroves Make sure to bring all essential provisions, ie water , food , towels etc. Once on the island , there are no refreshments available. They do have bathrooms albeit smelly ones. What we didn't like was the fact that the ferry only carries 6 people at a time
