Punta Borinquen Beach



Aguadilla BeachSunsets are one the most popular subjects among photographers. And nowhere in the world are they more beautiful than in the western coast of Puerto Rico. It’s a geographical thing.

I made this image just steps to the west of the “Punta Borinquen” Lighthouse Ruins in Aguadilla on a beach that wouldn’t seem like much from a swimmer’s viewpoint. The sand is thick and rocky, the surf is strong and there’s lots of “sargaso” weed in the water.  All bad for swimming, but all great for photography.

Once again, since there’s no swimming on this beach, the place is secluded. So be extra careful if you’re alone with expensive camera gear.


And if you’re staying in the Aguadilla area, and would like to go to the beach, check out “Crash Boat”.  This beach used to be part of the US Navy installations during the first half of the 20th century and it’s very popular among the locals.

To get there just follow the second marker provided with this map or ask anyone in Aguadilla and they’ll point you in the right direction.
