This is a nice clean beach popular with locals. The water is balmy with a strong undercurrent. No life guard that I could see. It is possible to walk for 20/30 minutes along it. Some of the highrise buildings near Indo Park block the sun in the late afternoon.

This beach was clean, beautiful, and had a solid surf. I did not expect this beach to be as nice as the Florida beaches I am used to, but it lived up to the reviews on trip advisor for sure.

My favorite beach in the metro area. It is kept clean by the San Juan municipality, the security is good, sometimes you get a special treat and see the Puerto Rican mounted police on their beautiful horses, patrolling up and down the strip. Lots of people watching and some natural shade can be found throughout the long strip which is... More

Love this beach which was only a short 2 block walk from our guesthouse in Ocean Park. Although this beach is in a gated community, it is public as are all beaches in Puerto Rico, Many locals and a few tourists come to this beach to enjoy the very warm, wavy, and safe waters. I was concerned initially about sharks... More

I was expecting clear sky blue water. Since I Came Down Here From NYC where we have horrible beaches. That wasn't the case. The waves were ok. The second time I went in the Morning the waves look like surfing waves. Still have a great time. It was clean. The people were friendly. It Wasn't Crowded. It was fun!

We stayed a few minutes away from Ocean Park, and even compared to the pristine beaches of Vieques, this was by far my favorite - after a couple days it felt like home. It was always clean, not too crowded, and no obnoxious beach goers, and it felt like a nice mix of tourists and locals. We felt safe leaving... More

Beautiful place but long queue for most of the rides. The rope way is very scenic and interesting but by the time you reach your boggy you are already tired of standing in the queue. 2 of the cute panda's are attraction , they look beautiful and unique. Very nice place for kids.

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!

if you love waves and you are in San Juan , you are lucky, the beach is good for that. i would have loved a place to clean up sand when you finish.
