Ocean Park is a nice, quiet beach frequently toured by the LGBT community. The sand is clean, the water is warm and clear, and there are a good number of water sports available for those who like to participate in beach activities.

We were able to spend several days on our own little "private section" of beach --- there was plenty of space, water sports activities for those that were more active, and we did not feel cramped like the crowded areas we saw in the resort areas. It is a very peaceful beach - place to rest and enjoy the water.

Wide expansive beach for all the family with lots of locals away from the high rise hotels. Local vendors of drinks and food (they will not hassle you). Clean and populated in parts with coconut palm trees.

Urban beach setting. It can get crowded since many people of different parts of San Juan fo to this beach. Avoid the area at night and secure your belongings and car. I have friends who have had their cars broken into while at the beach.

Enjoyed the beach very much. Not too many people. Loved watching the sunsets. My daughter had a wonderful time in the ocean, water was so beautiful. Had a great time just sitting on the beach watching the kite surfing.

This place is less congested then Isla Verde Beach and El Alambique Beach. Its also VERY big. If you go to the part thats near the playground closer to La Concha there are not that many people over there. Further down there is a place that teaches kite surfing. Its beautiful and the sand is so soft.
