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

Sandwiched between Isla Verde and Condado, there is Ocean Park Beach. For years it was a "forgotten" location until the beautiful girls in the small bikinis migrated there in the mid eighties. Now it's the local "mecca" for San Juan beachgoers to spend their weekends sunbathing, windsurfing, kiteboarding, playing paddle ball or just enjoying the beach, restaurants and beautiful people.

We visited Ocean Park Beach on February 8, 2015, as it was a very short shuttle ride from our hotel. It is such a lovely beach! I am an ocean-lover and was overwhelmed by the endless view of ocean, the cleanliness of both sea and beach, and the long vistas of beach with hotels and condos along its edge. The... More

The main part of Ocean Park Beach is at then end of Calle Santa Ana, off Calle McLeary. There looks like a gated area as you turn onto Calle Santa Ana, but no one was there and we could walk all the way to the end of the street. Then you will see Numero Uno Guest House and Pamela's Restaurant... More

I came here to get sun and a tan, listen to the ocean and feel the breeze. Ocean Park beach gave all of it. Sand and beach very clean and quiet. It was very windy on a couple days. Liked the neighborhood.

Lots of locals at this beach. If you like to get an authentic experience, smelling what the locals are eating, hearing lots of Spanish, you should visit here. It is also a little easier to get into the water here than farther down the beach.
