La Playuela Beach, Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico
(Puerto Rico, USA)
La Playuela (Bahia Sucia) - Cabo Rojo
Our favorite beach is La Playuela in Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico.
La Playuela beach has a spectacular view of the cliffs in the distance of the Cabo Rojo light house from the sandy shore. The clear waters have a gorgeous blue color and are very gentle.
It is also known as Bahia Sucia or Dirty Beach. This name comes because of the significant quantities of sea weeds floating in the water, some of these seaweeds end up in the beach and gives it a distinctive "marine smell" which is not necessarily unpleasant. This only happens during the cold weather months (November to February).
This secluded beach is a favorite to our family due to the calm and shallow waters in the bay. It is part of a natural reserve but we come here late in the afternoon, however, because the sunsets here are breathtaking.
Hope to see you here!
Nori's Reply: Thank you so much for sharing, Jerry! Puerto Rico intrigues me. I've only connected through the airport, en route to Anguilla. Hopefully I'll get a chance to visit while I'm living in the Caribbean, and step foot on La Playuela Beach! Funny you should mention that marine smell... Sandy Ground in Anguilla has a similar smell, due to the area's salt pond and the fishing community. It's not necessarily an unpleasant thing either! Somehow makes it feel more familiar...
