10 of the most dangerous beaches in Puerto Rico

While it is estimated that an average of 30 people drown in local waters a year, bathers from Puerto Rico and abroad can encounter marine currents that can represent a danger to life from Jobos Beach, in Isabellato Flamenco beach, in Snake.

“Almost all the beaches in the north that are exposed to the waves are dangerous,” said the director of the Sea Grant Programof the University of Puerto Rico, Ruperto Chaparro Serrano.

According to a study of Sea Grant, between 1999 and 2010, 44.2% of drownings occurred in the northern zone. The south was the area with the fewest fatal accidents, with 7.5%.

In the period evaluated, 159 people died from drowning in the northern zone, followed by the western (96), eastern (79) and southern (27) zones. In total, 361 deaths were recorded between the aforementioned years. The towns with the highest incidence of drowning, according to the study, were San Juan (43), Arecibo (28), Loiza (24), Isabella (twenty-one), Aguadilla (21) and Luquillo (19).
