Small beach area away from the surf; great for kayaking and stand up paddleboarding

This lagoon is calm and protected from the Atlantic surf. There isn't a lot of beach, but both locals and tourists enjoy it. My wife spent a nice hour stand up paddleboarding.

The beach across from the Lagoon was AWESOME! Find parking down the street and head to this beach. THe water is warm and the underground coral reef is awesome. We saw so many varieties of fish for free because we had a gear it was awesome! The coral is in good shape and it appears that people are respectful of... More

Great place to relax and meditate and just walk or sit and take in the scenery and breath the fresh air and enjoy the wonderful water way

If you love paddle boarding, you'd probably enjoy the Condado Lagoon. We planned our trip around this location, and we weren't disappointed. Within an hour of landing at San Juan Airport, we were paddle boarding on the lagoon. No waiting, no lines. (There are two rental companies on site.) The water was still and calm. The lagoon is protected, and... More

We went here to snorkel. There were a few fish, but, when we were there, nothing worth going for. Several cruise ship people were there, but they were surprised the beach was so small. I suggest if you are on a ship and want to go to a beach, ask to be taken to Balneario el Escambrón for a real... More

Perfect, safe, calm waters. We tried paddle boarding here for the first time. My husband got it right away. Me, I am a water buffalo and fell in after a few minutes. I paddled on my knees for an hour. It is a great place to learn because the water is so calm. We rented our paddle boards through our... More

We left La Concha resort and did the complete walk around the lagoon. There are plenty of opportunities for pictures as well as a few nice places to just sit, relax and enjoy the view. If you are looking for a nice jog or run location, this would make a great loop. Also a few good places along the way... More

We walked to the condado lagoon area one evening. It has a beautiful view of the san juan city skyline at night. The bridge has a nice area for walkers and joggers.

My boyfriend and I stopped here after a few drinks while we decided on dinner. It was a place that had a few couples. Great place to take pictures.
