Windsurfing Introducion

Visitors to our Island with interests in windsurfing will discover that winds and waves around Puerto Rico's shores form excellent conditions for the sport. This is true especially along the north and northwest coast, where ocean swells and high winds from Atlantic storms push masts to their limits during the winter season. These same conditions shift to the south during the summer months.

North & Northwest Coast

Fabulous beaches along the north coast offers some good year-round windsurfing, for beginners and intermediate windsurfers. Winds averaging 10- 1 5 knots. In the Condado Lagoon, in San Juan, the water is relatively calm, but constant winds makes this a heaven for novice windsurfers.

 

Intermediate surfers will want to try Condado's Ocean Park located a short ways east of the Lagoon. Continue this heading for plenty of windy points and rolling waves along the coast. Isla Verde has Punta Las Marias, Pine Grove and Isla Verde Beach. Deep reefs and few rocks presents less risk for injury along this area. Bahía de Luquillo and Costa Azul beaches off the northeastern town of Luquillo are other popular spots.

 

Visitors can go windsurfing all along the coast west of San Juan as well. These locations include Breñas and Kikitas off Dorado, Los Tubos and Sarapa situated along Vega Alta and Manatí. Several beaches along Arecibo's coast include Peñón de Mero, Margara, La Marginal, Cueva del Indio, the Hollows, and Machuca. If you're in Hatillo, try Las Cabras.

 

At the northwest region of the Island, points along Isabela including Jobos, Surfer, and Shacks beach, offers some great chances for windsurfing. But take heed! These beaches, and most points off Aguadilla to Rincon are strictly for experts. During the winter season, from November to March, waves can reach heights of up to 20 feet in some places.

East Coast

On the East coast expect to find a good amount of flat water sailing. Several popular windsurf beaches include El Faro and Racetrack in Fajardo. Visitors will find some windsurfing conditions east of the mainland along Ensenada Honda on the Island of Culebra. If you're in Humacao, try Palmas del Mar.

South

Along the Southern coast of Puerto Rico a few places exist where you can have a fun time windsurfing. These points include the Bahía de Guayama in Guayama, El Malecón in Santa Isabela, El Tuque in Ponce, and La Parguera Bay in Lajas. Conditions for flat water sailing exist here too.
