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. Early mornings you can go to Barbosa park and run the track or do some exercise along with the locals. Its the perfect beautiful beach if you are a foreigner looking to see and experience... More

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.

Enjoyed the beach very much. Not too many people. Loved watching the sunsets. My daughter had a wonderful time in the ocean, water was so beautiful. Had a great time just sitting on the beach watching the kite surfing.

This place is less congested then Isla Verde Beach and El Alambique Beach. Its also VERY big. If you go to the part thats near the playground closer to La Concha there are not that many people over there. Further down there is a place that teaches kite surfing. Its beautiful and the sand is so soft.

My husband and I love this beach. It's located in a great neighborhood and fills up pretty quickly on weekends.

The waves might be little scary for small children, but this is a very nice, quite and clean beach. The chair and umbrellas are for sale for $5 and $10 a piece. Go enjoy condado beach!

We stayed a block away so this beach was very convenient. The beach was clean and not too populated. It appeared there was a summer volleyball camp going on the morning we arrived, that was fun to watch. We found the water and sand to be a little more rough than the beaches in Luquillo and other areas visited but... More
