Playa Pelícano is one of the most pristine beaches in Puerto Rico. Although there are some cabañas available, if you want to be close to the water, bring an umbrella or hat to cover from the sun.
This is a full-day adventure. The ferry will drop you off on the island around mid-morning and will depart around 3:00 p.m.
While Puerto Rico has pleasant weather year-round, avoid going in September, which is the peak month during hurricane season.
The ferry has two different prices: $28 per person, including taxes and you bring your own food and drinks; or $60 and they provide food and drinks. You are allowed to bring a cooler (for a small fee) and food with you.
