Geoff spotted some dirt tracks on Google Maps not long ago and has been wanting to check them out for ages..what better day to do it than today! It was sunny, dry and Geoff's knee has been getting better rapidly, so we thought we'd make the most it.
The area belongs to the Department of Natural Resources and is just off the highway...I'm not giving away too much more as the area is unspoilt except some red off-road tracks that you cannot go on without a 4WD.
The beaches here in Puerto Rico are either beautiful, but full of people - or empty, with lots of rubbish and stray dogs. This beach we found (which doesnt even have a name according to Google Maps) was MAGNIFICENT. It was huge - golden sand, lined with palm trees and other bushy greens and the water was a crystal clear blue/green with just the perfect temperature for swimming.
We had packed ourselves a little picnic and enjoyed being back on the road, back at the beach (after being vehicle-less for a month) and enjoyed the deserted surroundings - truly feeling like the only people on the whole island!
We'll be back soon!!
