With hundreds of miles of coastline and an eternal summer weather, Puerto Rico offers a different beach for every day of the year, from the pure white dunes of Isabela to the black volcanic sands near Punta Santiago in Maunabo. You can even choose your level of excitement, from a stroll in the shimmering shallow waters at Luquillo to a romp in the boisterous surf of Rincon.
For visitors looking to get close to the water, but not necessarily submerge in it, Puerto Rico offers various other water sports. You can be windsurfing, sailing or fishing the deep seas, rivers, lakes or bays. For a little more action, you can go kayaking on the Tanama River or the Caribbean Sea, or body surf down a rushing mountain stream.
World-class surfing can be enjoyed in nearly every part of the island with waves that can reach twenty-five feet high, but particularly in Rincón, site of the 1968 and 1988 world surfing championships and host to numerous major competitions.

Whatever your favorite water sport is, you can do it better in, on or near the tropical waters of Puerto Rico.
