This beach was right across from the hotel that we were staying at. Where we were at it was a little rocky, so we moved to another part of that beach. The sand was white and the water was like a bluish white. It was beautiful just relaxing on the beach and looking at the waves.

This beach it nicer than Condado and with fewer tourists. There are a few restaurants if you get hungry (fewer than Condado). You have a better chance of hearing Spanish spoken here than English. Personally I prefer it

Clean beach! The water was very warm during each of my dips in the water. The surf was a little strong due to it being hurricane season and the impending tropical storm. There were plenty of palm trees to take shade with beach chairs, which prevented the need for carrying beach umbrellas to the ocean. There are rocks/coral right near... More

Fun time learning the history of Bacardi. I def. recommend doing the visitor center ($12) tour, as it comes with a free drink and souvenir class. We were able to go through different rooms as a tour guide gave us information. The other two options, for $35, were either for rum tasting or a mixology class. When we arrived, we... More

Don't go here! There is nothing here except white sand (We prefer dead corral and rocks). Nobody bothers you or tries to sell you stuff. There are no drunken college students and all the garbage gets placed into the readily available garbage containers. My wife and I wasted an entire day here with nothing to do except watch the waves... More

If you like to see white sand beaches, with turquiose water, this is one of the best stops in Puerto RIco, and definitely in the metro area!

This was a beautiful park and the service from David was very appreciated! He set up our chairs and umbrellas, and brought us food and drinks.

Going to Isla Verde you can find Ocean Park Beach, also called the "last trolley" beach because it was the sop of the last trolley of San Juan many years ago. The beach as all the beaches of PR are public so you can park your car, wearing your swim suit and can spend few hours walking by the beach... More

I enjoyes this beach. It was busy but not to busy where you could not find a spot. We stayed steps away from the beach in a rental property and it was the perfect spot. We came out in the evening and sat out on the beach for a few hours, the breeze was the best and the water was... More

The waves are rough but we had a good time. We didnt rent chairs or umbrellas, just laid out on our towels and enjoyed the beach. There is what I believe is a corral reef near the shore line that is very sharp, wear swim shoes. Other than that, Loved it!!!
