Cayo Icacos, one of a few small cays off the east coast in Puerto Rico which is only accessible by boat. Except on weekends, Icacos is a great destination if you looking for an alternative to Culebra Island, which is quite exhausting to get there by ferry.
Icacos Island is only a 10-15 minutes boat ride and you can book your water taxi directly with Captian Lucas from East Coast Water Taxi to spend a nice and relaxing day off the main island on a stunning little island.
There are nice reefs right at the shore of the island and another large reef right off the coast of Icacos, accessible by boat. Depending on the level of the tide, there are also rock pools which are a great place for smaller kids to play in safely – supervised.
Clear water, fine, bright sand and a small island for you to explore. Enjoy a nice day on Icacos Island.
