Shacks Beach is both a surf spot and snorkeling spot. Due to its location and limited access most people tend to surf the surrounding areas. It is a GREAT spot for snorkeling. We have it mapped on our custom map and also show the best location for getting into the water. We marked the entrance to the water so you don’t step on urchins, which tend to hide along the rocky/reef portion of the beach. The main marker point on the map is also the exact location of an awesome drop off, “The Blue Hole”. The reef drops off from 2-3 ft deep to 30 ft deep instantly. The coolest part is that the reef completely circles the drop off creating something like a swimming pool.
Finding Wishing Well without a GPS can be quite time consuming. If you are up for the challenge at least do your best to remember points on the map before heading out. However, we highly recommend a GPS for this spot
Wishing Well is best known as a surf spot, but it is much less consistent than the surrounding waves of Aguadilla. However, there are very few places in Puerto Rico, or for that matter the world, as scenic as this. If you are in the Aguadilla area, grab your GPS and stop by Wishing Well.
Our only warning is that the small public parking lot at the end of the road just in front of Wishing Well is littered with the glass of many broken car windows so do not leave valuables in your car. The beach front is only steps from the parking lot, so as long as you are not going out snorkeling or surfing you should be fine. Better yet, there is a house right there at the end of the road that will let you park in the yard for a small fee. That house is pictured with the rooster on the roof top. We have parked in the public lot on many occasions and never had an issue, but it never hurts to play it safe.
Crash Boat Beach in Aguadilla Puerto Rico is known best for being a surfing and bodyboarding spot even though it is not an extremely consistent surf spot compared to the surrounding area. It requires a large swell to wrap around into the Aguadilla Bay area. On good surf days the crowds are huge, but the wave is worth it.
The irony of Crash Boat Beach is that the pier / dock was originally built for fishing boats to dock there. Unfortunately, Mother Nature had different plans for this spot. Local currents dropped tons of sand into the beach and pier area making it impossible to dock a boat at the pier. Instead the sand created a great surf spot.
Beyond surfing Crash Boat Beach is a very popular spot for locals and tourists looking to go out snorkeling and swimming on days where there isn’t big surf. There is plenty of parking and the beach is easy to find. It quite possibly has more signs on the roads directing you there than any other beach in Puerto Rico. We still included, not just the mapped location, but also the route is drawn out on our map.
