Spend a wonderful beach vacation day in Monterrico black sand beach that is waiting to engulf you in a day of relaxation. This Pacific coast beach provides beautiful views of the strong crashing waves and unique black sand. During this beach vacation, you will have the chance to relax in the sun, while surrounded by nature. Monterrico Beach is known for the sea turtles that can be found there. Around 5000 baby sea turtles are released here each year. If you are visiting at the right time, you may get to help with a release. There is a nearby turtle farm that takes care of the turtles and organizes this activity.

What to expect

Expect sun, warmth, natural sounds and a day of relaxation. You will be picked up from your hotel in Antigua and taken to Monterrico Beach. Walk along the black-sand beach to enjoy the sights and sounds around you. Gaze in awe at the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean. Enjoy lying in a hammock to rest and rejuvenate. The area is great for bird-watching, so lay back and enjoy the sights of the sky as they fly above. The sky is not the only place that you want to watch for beautiful creatures though. Make sure to look in the sand for sea turtles. Enjoy a wonderful relaxing day!
