It's a bit crowded.

It is beautiful but a bit crowded. The sand is more like a powdery dust. It was okay. Conveniently located near hotels, restaurants, and other attractions in Condado.

It can get a little windy here, but it's awesome because it cools you off on a hot day and there are some awesome waves!! it is easy to walk up and down the beach and the color of the water is really amazing, it never looks the same in pictures as it does in person!! amazing!!

It is nice beach to relax and chill on but nothing spectacular. It has no real water activities that you can do around. Although it is a good place to chill and relax on if thats what you wanted.

Boogy boards, wind surfers, kite surfers and paddle boarding are some of the activities going on along this beach. It is longer than some would think, as we went over a mile on our morning walks. Families playing, runners getting some miles in, beach bunnies absorbing vitamin D and swimmers playing in the waves were some of the things going... More

Beach is clean. Plenty of chairs to rent. Current is very strong and the undertow will surprise you. I was big enough to fight through the waves and float further out into the water but my wife was getting knocked around. Very nice and the area is great.

Although this beach is beautiful, clean and the water is clear and warm-- the waves were very rough. We visited in February and stayed at a hotel on this beach. There was a red flag every day we went here warning us of dangerous water conditions. If you have young kids-- they won't be able to swim here. If you're... More

Best beaches in Puerto Rico and safe without peddlers. La concha provides free towels, chairs and umbrellas which was so nice

Condado Beach is a public beach - no fee. It doesn't look big - only 2 blocks long, but big enough for families, tourists and natives to enjoy. The water was blue and warm (even in February) and there was lots of room so you didn't feel crowded. No big waves - its in a cove. The water is shallow... More

What beach isn't pretty amazing when you are on vacation? This beach was walking distance from our hotel (Coral Princess). There were many people. Plenty of chairs and umbrellas (for rent, but also "abandoned" ones from folks who left the beach for the day). Note: chairs/umbrellas by the Marriott got picked up @5p when we were there, but you can... More

Enjoyed this beach, but it wasn't our top choice. It was a nice day, but the waves were really high.
