Maria’s Beach Rincon Puerto Rico

Maria’s Beach in Rincon PR is one of the most popular surfing destinations for more experienced surfers, which means it can sometimes get a little congested during the peak winter season. Fortunately, Maria’s Beach offers plenty of space both on sand and in the water, giving surfers and sunbathers an equal opportunity to spread out and enjoy all that Maria’s Beach has to offer. With its rocky shoreline and close-breaking waves, Maria’s Beach offers a challenge to surfers willing to test out the waters during the winter season. In the off-season though, Maria’s Beach is the perfect spot to relax, catch some rays, and enjoy a typical balmy beach day in the Caribbean.

Maria’s Beach Rincon Puerto Rico

Maria’s Beach is located on Rincon Puerto Rico’s “Sunset Coast,” which is said to be home to wilder waves and some of the most beautiful sunsets in the Caribbean. When traveling down the 413, pass by Steps Beach and Tres Palmas, and continue straight instead of heading up the hill into Puntas. You’ll pass by the Bohio and the Calypso Cafe and find yourself in the center of surfing activity in Rincon PR. Maria’s Beach is located right next to Dogman’s, which is also a very popular surf spot, and also butts up to the scenic El Faro Rincon lighthouse. Wondering how Maria’s Beach got its name? During the World Surfing Championship in 1968, which spurred the majority of attention that Rincon PR enjoys today, tents were set up behind the house of a woman named Dona Maria, and the nickname stuck!

Maria’s Beach Rincon PR Attractions

The most visited hangouts at Maria’s Beach are probably Calypso Cafe, a small restaurant/bar located right in the Maria’s parking lot, and the Bohio, a tiny beach-shack type bar that boasts inexpensive beers and a delicious, albeit simple, new menu. Calypso is open for most of the day and into the night, which makes it a great option for a post-surf meal and downing a few beers with friends. Calypso is also a great place to relax and enjoy the world-renowned Rincon PR sunsets, and you can even find some great souvenirs, swimsuits and other beach accessories in the Calypso gift shop. The Bohio is popular mostly because of its simple and friendly atmosphere, its proximity to Maria’s Beach, and the ease of grabbing a beer on the go. Despite the Bohio’s small size, it’s rare that there isn’t a crowd gathered around the shack, sipping on delicious drinks and enjoying the company of Rincon PR locals and visitors.
