It was never really crowded and I never worried about leaving my stuff up on the beach while I was in the water. It is only a 5 minute walk to any restaurants and was a block from our hotel. Beautiful area - would love to visit again.

Super safe and gives you a true vibe of Puerto Rico. Beaches and streets full of locals. Non touristy good restaurants. Just an awesome and friendly vibe.

The beach is nice clean and well kept. The only thing is the waves are to high and not a good place to play in the water. There was a storm brewing in the ocean and that could be what caused the rough water

We rented an apartment in Ocean Park while on vacation and loved this area. There is a beach, plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance. We plan on booking the same apartment when we return to San Juan. It was very modern w/ a rooftop balcony and really affordable.

Not the prettiest beach, but still great water and smooth sand Convenient because of its location, minutes from old town, close to restaurants and bars. Check out La B de Burron while you are there.

The beach at Ocean Park is a nice, free walkable stretch of shoreline. Nice tree groupings provide shade. Hotels, Inns and various residentials line the beach. Passing vendors are passive. Didn't see any bathrooms. Water was very cold in January. Was clean & clear but after the 6.5 earthquake, waves rolled full of dark seaweed in large sections. There are... More

Ocean Park had a nice beach, not too crowded. The waves were a bit bigger than some of the other beaches we saw in Puerto Rico, and there was some seaweed left over from the tides (but what can you expect on a shared beach). It was fun watching people walk their dogs and seeing kids run back and forth.... More

Everyone that goes to PR should have dinner at Pamela's, food, drinks delicious, sitting outside on the beach is wonderful, you can sir inside which is very pretty, but sitting outside under the sky with the stars is heaven.

Loved the wide open beach with plenty of natural shade available, lots of dogs romping and playing which is fun to watch, friendly people. Like a casual party on the weekend and a quiet resort during the week.

One of Sanjuaneros favorite beaches. Close to restaurants and bars. Always a little rough but great for body surfing and buggies . Excellent people watching/meeting
