Bahía Beach is the first and only resort in the Caribbean to be awarded with the Gold Signature Sanctuary certification by Audubon International in view of the fact that it has been blessed by nature since the beginning of time. Nestled in a two-mile sandy beach on the northeast coast of the island of Puerto Rico, Bahia Beach is an idyllic location at the foot of a natural reserve of 483 acres. Over 65% of the property is preserved as green areas, sanctuaries and nature trails. It adheres to the highest standards of sustainability and conservation of nature.

Environmental Outreach Program
“Soul of Bahia” is a comprehensive program focused on environmental education and outreach for residents, guest, staff, contractors, and particularly the surrounding community.
Tree Planting Program
We have transplanted more than 5,000 trees with an 80% success.
The area offers a wide variety of natural species including marshes, lakes, a coconut plantation, fresh water swamps, mangroves, sandy beach, coral reef and secondary forests. Our zone is a natural environment of great value for wildlife. Protecting and enhancing habitat are the main tools for wildlife conservation. Endangered species like the leatherback turtle and the Caribbean Manatee are protected in coordination with public and private organizations .
The nature center is located at the Boathouse and it serves as a laboratory for environmental education.
