Bastimento Beach is a northside beach with views of mainland PR to the left and Culebra to the right.
It is a nice long strip of sand for walking, beachcombing, etc. Foot protection is recommended though because most of the “sea glass” here, and there is plenty, hasn’t been tumbled smooth. There is a very shallow protected area right at the edge of the sand which is shielded by a line of reef and rocks. There is good snorkeling as well, depending on wind and waves.
There is some shade along the shore from the bushes and palm trees.
