Crash Boat Beach or Playa Crash Boat is a beach located in the northwestern Puerto Rican municipality of Aguadilla. It occupies a former military port site used to rescue downed aircrews from Ramey Air Force Base and still retains some remains of pier infrastructure. The beach is primarily accessed by taking PR-107 to a spur signed, PR-458.
These remains have become an accessible location for fishing and for jumping into the clear waters. Crash Boat also has two large sand beach areas for general bathing,Scuba and Snorkeling, and power boarding.
The closest passenger airport to Crash Boat is Rafael Hernández Airport(BQN), only 4 miles(6 km). Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport(SJU) in Carolina takes about 1 hour & 30 minutes (85 miles) to get to this magnificent beach.

Crash Boat – Puerto Rico Photography Hot Spot
Lens: This area is a wide angle lens location.
Gear List at a Glance: Circular polarizing filter, neutral density filters, tripod, shutter release, wide angle and zoom lens. CPL filters will help you to create dynamic images. We recommend never shooting outdoors without one. They will make your white puffy clouds whiter, take the silver glare off of water and replace it with a beautiful reflection. If you have moving waters at the location you will want to have your neutral density filters with you to get the long exposure, milky water effect.
When to Go: Any time of year. It is a tourist location, so midweek is the best offseason. Summer can be hot of course.
We found it to be the best place with the best rates and great service!
Fusion was right on the beach. The rooms were immaculate, spacious, and super comfortable. The porch we had was right near the ocean where we could hear the waves and see the night sky. Management was superb. It was a zen type feeling all the way around while staying at this lovely location. We sat on the beach at sunrise a few steps from our room with our cup of coffee. The local restaurants are within a mile. We highly recommend you stay here when in this area of Puerto Rico.
