To the beach. Playa Aviones – Local Surf Spot

Aviones Beach is considered one of the most consistent beaches for surfing close to the metropolitan area of Puerto Rico. It is just a 20 minute drive from San Juan. Due to its shallow waters, reef, and wave force, it is not recommended for beginner surfers, so we had fun watching the pros and swimming in the water.
