Near the coastal town of Fajardo are some of the most beautiful beaches in the northeast of the island. Every year the fine white sands of Seven Seas Beach draw locals and tourists to this cozy stretch of shoreline. A great place to snorkel, the shallow sea bottom at Seven Seas is teaming with tropical fish, coral formations and an abundance of other sea life. Offshore reefs help keep the waves down and strong trade winds make it an ideal spot for sailing and windsurfing. The public beach is a favorite with campers, who must obtain a permit before getting settled.
Nearby are water sports facilities, as well as a string of uninhabited islets that provide a secluded slice of tropical paradise and more fantastic snorkeling. Some area hotels and tour operators offer day trips to nearby cays such as Palominos, Icacos, Palominitos, and Diablo.
