It's a beautiful beach, with lot of near food kiosk to eat. You can rent a kayak and enjoy a super nice trip at the beach.

The beach itself is reasonable, but the food kiosks are generally more bars than restaurants, with many offering the same fried from frozen product. The blaring car radios disturb any efforts to relax, and the town itself is definitely showing wear.

Great beach! The water is crystal clear. Locals parked in the area with music playing, dogs on the beach, and local restaurant and bars lined the way behind the beach. So fun here-could definitely spend more time on this beach. Also, check out Yareh. It is a new restaurant that serves delicious flash-fried Durado (mahi-mahi). So yummy!

Very safe and convenient beach. A lot of parking, a TON of choices for food. Clean bathrooms. You can rent beach chairs and umbrellas. No annoying vendors chasing you down. A lot of locals, families, music and water sports.

Absolutely amazing low-key non-crowded beach. The only regret I have was waiting so long to go. We finally made it to the beach the last day of our trip. We stopped for a brief dinner run one time which gave us the idea to go back. It is the cheapest food that we bought while in Puerto Rico, the best... More

After visiting El Yunque we stopped on the frontage road where there are several restaurants near the beach. Do not consider renting jet skis unless you have a lot of money and you have to follow a guide. So if you want to have lunch and enjoy the beach for a couple of hours this is a nice spot.

Good beach for family and kids, would pay the 5 dollars for parking. Spent about and hour and walked along the beach, coconut water was the highlight. Unless you have time to spare and its not out of your way, would be a good place.
