Head west from San Juan on Highway 22 take the Barcoloneta exit to road 684 just keep driving it will turn into road 681 after you get toward the coast. You'll be driving with in view of the shore for the next 3.5 miles and then you should be very near Hollows. Here is the problem, the break is not visible from the road and there is no clear marker of where you have to stop. So basically you are going to have to ask people along the road where Hollows is, basically where you see a bunch of cars usually parked along the road in front of a couple of houses to your left and one house to your right--beach side (which a large sand dune is starting to cover it up) you then have probably found Hollows. Just park in front of the house and pay the old man a buck or 2 to watch your car but if you dont park in a visible spot beware of thieves, also dont leave anything on the beach-- it wont be there when you get back.
