We stayed at the Dreamcatcher nearby...

so it was a great location to stay in Ocean Park and away from all the resort hotels. Less people and buildings was very nice. Great beach!

Our favorite beach that we discovered in biking distance in and around San Juan. There might be better ones, but this one is great. Quiet, palm trees and beautiful surf.

Great public beach located along a nice residential area, off of McLeary Street,within walking distance, 2 blocks from the main streets, which are conveniently located in Ocean Park, right in-between both Condado (west) & Isla Verde (east) touristy areas in San Juan

This beach is great for people watching. The surf can be rough here but the sand is great and if you want a different beach every day (like we do,) this is a good one to add to your list.

Nice beach to just sit, relax, and watch the waves and the sunsets. This is a public beach. No bathrooms. No parking fees. Best during weekdays (less people). Quite clean. Go into the water with caution, waves can be treacherous - not for kids. But incredible sunsets.

Clean beach with a good mix of tourists and locals. Vendors walk up and down the beach selling street food, beer and water (we had both empanadas ($3 each) and alcapurrias ($3 each) from two different vendors - they were great!), but they did not hassle anyone at all which was nice! If you want loungers and umbrellas, Numero Uno... More

This is a quiet, pet and volleyball friendly beach. You won't get a ton of traffic because there is not many options for food on the water. Also if you get towards Calle Santa Cecilia, you will find security is extremely obvious around the huge houses, I was told important people to Puerto Rico live on that street and it... More

This beach is okay. I mean, it's nice but there's nothing special about it, only its location. I do like going here when I do not wanna travel much to go to the beach but it is definitely not my first option
