Crash Boat – Puerto Rico Photography Hot Spot
Crash Boat Beach or Playa Crash Boat
Crash Boat is a beach located in Aguadilla’s northwestern Puerto Rican municipality. This is a photography hot spot location. 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 fishing location and 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.

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.
See our How to Shoot Waterfall Photography Page for more details. There are moving waters all around this location.

Fusion – See Details Above
Fusion was right on the beach. The rooms were immaculate, spacious, and super comfortable. The porch 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.
Check out the weather
Don’t forget that you can use a rain sleeve on your camera if it is raining. If it is bright and sunny, you want to use a low ISO such as 100.
If you are doing photography along with your ghost hunting on cloudy days, you can do running water or waterfall photography to avoid the glaring sun. You can also use an ND filter to get a long exposure for dramatic effects, even in the sunshine. If you ghost hunt indoors in abandoned places, be careful!
