Melones Beach is part of the Luis Peña Channel Natural Reserve. It’s really easy to get to; you just drive right up to it and park just steps from the beach. You enter and exit the water just behind the "Melones Beach" sign and picnic table. Swim to the right, to where the rocks jut out of the water. The underwater rock formations and reef here are amazing. Everything was covered with many fans and soft corals, along with all types of hard corals. The depth here is probably 10-15 feet.
Tamarindo Beach, also part of the Luis Peña Channel Natural Reserve, is nice because you can drive right to it, and it has some amazing sea life. There is a small reef close to the far left area, and the University of Puerto Rico is even "planting" coral to help refurbish the reef. The main draw at Tamarindo are the sea turtles and stingrays. The turtles love the sea grass in the area and the stingrays like the sandy bottom out by the sea grass, too.
Tortuga is a beach on Culebrita island. Tortuga Beach is a horseshoe of white powder-like sand and crystal clear waters. It is a great beach for swimming and amateur snorkeling. There are no amenities to speak of so bring all you need for day of fun in the sun, swimming and hiking. Plan ahead at Villa Boheme's office for a water taxi. Reservations are definitely suggested. Remember that Culebrita is part of the Natural Reserve so tread lightly on the hiking paths and mind the corals while snorkeling. Most importantly, be ready to have fun in this little piece of paradise.
Zoní Beach is as beautiful as Flamenco Beach in its white sands and clear waters. As opposed to Flamenco, it’s less populated, therefore peaceful. On the downside, it has no amenities, so you should pack some snacks and beverages with you if you’re planning to spend a whole day there.
