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.

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
