At first glance it seems like it wouldn't be as nice as it looks online but it is. There is a smaller shoreline but it's clean, in a fun area and if you walk around you will find vendors, fruit smoothie stands and a lot of locals. We loved it!

This beach has some waves but overall very good . Recommend to go during the week, weekends can get very crowded. There is not much to eat around some bring something with you. There is parking across the street but get there early. Very nice area.

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.

This beach was gorgeous and with more locals than tourists its a perfect place to soak up the beach, sun and the Puerto Rican atmosphere.

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.
