Isla Caja de Muertos
One of Puerto Rico’s offshore islands, Caja de Muertos, or Coffin Island (so named for its shape), is a an 8-mile boat ride from Ponce’s docks. Take a day to explore the island, which is a designated nature reserve with a lighthouse built in 1887, cave, and trails, or to simply relax on its white sand beaches. There’s no fresh water on the island, so pack in and pack out – and bring a picnic, too; there are no food kiosks or vendors on the island, which remains one of Puerto Rico’s best-kept secrets.
