  • Very clean beach with beautiful scenery. They have picnic tables, garbage cans, dock for fishing. Some of the tables are broken, but the beach is exceptionally clean.
  • The most popular beach in Aguadilla and one of the favorites on the west coast for residents of Puerto Rico. There’s a little bit of everything at Crash Boat, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing pier, great sunsets, dancing pelicans, cheap local food, and plenty of parking. During the winter months, the west end of the beach becomes a playground for surfers. Beach volleyball is a popular pastime for young locals during sunset. Crash Boat Beach is one of the best beaches to experience the authentic local Puerto Rican experience, simple, relaxed, friendly, and always fun. The beach was probably named Crash Boat after all the colorful fishermen boats that “crash” on the shores of the beach. If you love photography, Crash boat is a great spot at sunset. The water is beautiful, with various shades from crystal clear, baby blue to cerulean blue tones. There are some spots best for swimming where the water is calmer, if you’re visiting for the first time, feel free to ask a local, swim where you see families with children, or be sure to get in the water before your children to check out the depth and conditions. The cool thing about Crash Boat is that in one location you get 3 different beaches, each appealing to a specific group, one of the reasons this beach is so popular among locals. The south end of Crash Boat typically has fewer crowds, you tend to see more people just chilling with a book and enjoying a good show from surfers during the winter months.
