The vibe at Malaquite Campground
Drop some Malaquite Campground knowledge on us.
We visited here on 4/27/17 (before the hurricane)
There is free beach camping south of the established campground (After you pay the park fee, that is). Much less crowded and you have access to the whole beach. Stop in the visitor center to get the park pass and instructions on how to get there. The established campgrounds were quite packed when we visited.
We very much enjoyed the beach here an the sunrise from this side of the island can't be missed. Salt and sand everywhere.
We camped here March and June of 2017. We enjoyed our stay both times. The facilities are clean, the shower and restroom were very convenient.
The best thing about this site is the sunrise and moonrise views. Watching a fullmoon rise here is spectacular.
We came here primarily for the sea turtle release, although there weren’t many people at the campsite/beach since it’s not a huge campsite. A lot of people come for the baby sea turtle release when it happens at 6:45 AM. The release is worth it for sure.
We’d definitely come back.
