Although not a polished tourist spot, my husband and I stayed in Ocean Park for 10 days and enjoyed ourselves. The beach is clean with a mix of tourists and locals, as well as non-hassling vendors walking up and down selling empanadas, alcapurrias, water, and beer. There are some great restaurants in the neighborhood too - we loved Bagua and... More

Fun beach to hang out on. Weekends they have someone selling burgers, chicken on the beach. Also Pamela's beachfront restraint is a great place to eat right on the beach. they also have servers that will bring you drinks to the beach with umbrellas and chairs to rent. Awesome day at the beach!

This beach is a mini version of Isla Verde. Beautiful beach with powder like sand. I went there every day. It was about 3 minutes from the guest house I stayed.

Its kind of secluded for being in the cosmo area, lots of gated streets so park in the first spot you can, also very Gay friendly

This neighborhood cannot be judged by a casual drive-by. You have to spend some time here to appreciate it. While it doesn't look as polished as its neighbor, Condado, or as distinctive as Old San Juan, it is home to some of the best restaurants and inexpensive guest houses anywhere. I've walked it day and night, and have always felt... More

We walked to Ocean Park from the Dreamcatcher Guest House which is in a very nice residential neighborhood and away from the hotel area. The tall palm trees provided a good amount of shaded area which was good since there were no umbrellas or chairs to rent on the beach. Dreamcatcher does rent them. There is also plenty of sunny...

Kitesurfing is very popular at this beach conditions vary but most of the time the wind is perfect. A day here and you will see a lot of kitesurfers and people learning to kitsurf. I definitely recommend this beach if you want to learn to kitsurf.

Ocean Park is one of the most picturesque, serene, calm and yet unobtrusive scenes to park for a nice day in the sun. A respected crowd by the local vendors, and the main street filled to varied eateries. We traveled with our very small pet and stayed at a boutique hotel with some amazing food. The only time we left... More

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.
