Wilderness Beach in Aguada has, on any given day, some of the bigger waves on the western part of the island. If Domes and Marias are at 6-8 feet, Wilderness might be 8-10 feet. It is a tough drive to get there, but Wilderness Beach is a great spot to surf or shoot. From Highway 2, head down 107 toward Ramey Air Base in Aguada. As you pass the radar station you will notice the Borinquen Golf Club on your left. Turn left on the road that crosses through the fairways and keep on going. Down a big hill, past a couple of parking lots, after the road turns to dirt, keep heading down and follow the coast. You will pass the ruins of several old, brick buildings where an outdoors church service sometimes gathers on Sunday Mornings. Another quarter mile of pitted, sloppy, muddy road and you will reach a dirt parking lot. This is Wilderness Beach. Locals take 4-wheelers and dirt bikes here to play on the small jungle trails, sea glass is abundant, and surfers love the spot. My favorite way to photography surfing here is to flip up the tailgate on the old 4Runner, make a soft pallet in the cargo area using towels, and follow the action from my spot of comfort and relaxation. One word of warning, the dirt road heading to Wilderness is pretty rough and I recommend 4-wheel-drive vehicles only. I have seen small cars at the parking lot before, but I honestly don’t know how they got there with their undersides still in-tact.
