    Located on the northwest corner of Puerto Rico, Jobos has a bit of everything: rugged fossilized sand dunes, a beautiful beach for the non-surfers, and some tasty local eateries.

    Rincón

  7. Steps

    With its short flight of concrete steps right on the beach and leading nowhere, Steps is an unmistakable fixture in the surf capital of Rincón. Steps and Tres Palmas go hand in hand, and is usually where experiences surfers go to hunt for big waves.

  8. Crash Boat

    Aguadilla’s most famous beach attracts surfers, bathers, and families alike. The beach was originally intended to serve as a dock, but that didn’t quite work out. Instead, the pier and nature combined to create a fun surf spot for all experience levels.

    Aguadilla

  9. Middles

    Another favorite among experienced surfers and pros, this was the main beach for the 2010 Rip Curl Pro Search, which brought some of the planet’s best surfers to Puerto Rico’s west coast. With its cinema-quality deep barrels, it’s not hard to see why.

  10. Domes

    One of the most popular surfing beaches in Puerto Rico, Domes is named for the massive dome that perches over the coast at its northern end. A remnant of a nuclear reactor built in the 1960s (don’t worry, the nuclear waste is long gone), the giant dome, together with the Rincón Lighthouse, make this one of the more scenic beaches on the island.

The trade winds of the Atlantic Ocean, waves, and warm water combine to offer ideal conditions for kiteboarding, a fast-growing sport that has taken firm root on the island. Head to the beaches of Ocean Park and Isla Verde, the kiteboarding hotspots of Puerto Rico, where you’ll find instruction and equipment rentals and sales.
