Gilligan's Island, Playa de Guanica

4.0
#15 of 67 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.

  • We came with Coqui Day Tours in Mid December on a Monday. For the first 30 minutes we had the island to ourselves which was amazing. After a while around 12 other people showed up.The water is clear.....  more »
  • This place is rundown and full of jellyfish. The customer service is horrible. The ferry that’s supposed to bring your food leaves with your food if they are in a hurry regardless if you paid ahead...  more »
  • I live Guilligans Island! I’ve been here so many times. The water is calm and clear it is great for adults as well as kids. The small fish swim around you. I once saw a seahorse. The trip there is...  more »

  • Too much jelly fish! Not sure if this is a seasonal thing (October)
  • First time here. Heard very good things about the island,44 but I'm thinking that was before Maria. The staff is very rude. No customer service. They don't smile and acknowledge the customer. They gave us a menu for food without explaining that you have to order before you get in the boat.The water was clear and warm but the surroundings are awful. The bathrooms were nasty and they smelled. When we got back to the pier, we mentioned that there was telephone number indicated to order food and we called over 30 times and no one answered. Imagine if there's an emergency, the person would be in big trouble. No way of getting an emergency call. We mentioned we were not satisfied and were going to make negative comments in their page. The staffs response was "do as you want" PR is in desperate need of resources like tourism but these individuals are hurting the island with their rudeness. We were a big group from NY and we will never come back to Gilligan's Island.
  • Truly love this place... Arrive early & bring your own picnic or take the boat they provide food at the.... dock bace. They have place to r rinse off the sand and changing rooms.
  • I love Guilligans Island whenever I visit Puerto Rico I always go there. But this time was a really bad experience the person behind the counter was extremely rude and disrespectful! I have no idea why she has a costumer service job because she clearly doesn't belong doing that type of work. It was sad because she was rude to us in front of our child which made it even worst. If any of the admisitrators read these reviews just know she is bringing your place down with her attitude. It is too much of a beautiful place to have such rude and unprofessional person working there
  • I fall in love with this beach. Where you take the boat to get there they have a good restaurant and they make delivery to the island if you want. They have restrooms but just make sure you bring your own toilet paper. They charge for cooler. Best time to get there is early in the morning so you can have a good spot and enjoy the whole day. At 5 pm you need to be out.
