Pools Beach Rincon PR

Located at the Western end of the beaches in Puntas, Pools Beach creates a beautiful and natural little cove that is perfect if you’re looking for a semi-private beach to spend your day. Pools Beach is also a great option for families with small children, as the beach offers lots of sand to play in and a pretty calm, protected area for swimming. When the winds and tide are right though, Pools Beach becomes a great option for surfers looking for a challenging Rincon PR surf break.

Annie’s Tip: “Pools is one of the local’s favorite surf spots because it can have great surf and be totally uncrowded, versus some of the other more well-known areas.  If you catch it right, the waves at Pools can be clean and glassy with no one else in sight.”

The Beach at Pools Rincon

If you turn down the hill at Puntas Bakery and head into Puntas proper, the first beach you come to will be Pools Beach, with a tiny little access to the beach from the road. Or, you can climb down the little trail from the rocky point between Pools and Sandy Beach, which is known as Siete Barrasos, and find yourself on the small and private Pools Beach. This rocky point contributes to some of the great surf that can be found at Pools, so keep an eye out for waves and keep your board handy!
