West Puerto Rico is often called the surf capital of the Caribbean. It has a wide range of amazing beaches. Although Aguadilla, Isabela, and Rincon have strong, deeply-rooted surf communities, Rincon is the most famous spot.

Rincon is a top surf spot and has been there since 1968, when the Surfing Championships took place. Rincon can be found on the island’s northwest corner, south of Aguadilla and north of Mayaguez. It is one of the most consistent spots throughout the Caribbean.

Although the locals are friendly and there is a wide variety of surf boats in the water, it is important to respect the rules and look out for potential hazards before entering the water. Rincon has a few great breaks, including Little Malibu and Tres Palmas.

Spots for different styles and skill levels

Little Malibu is a great spot for longboarding. It’s a right-hander break over shallow reefs that can be very fast. Tres Palmas, a right-hand reef break, is the most well-known spot for big waves in the Caribbean.
