I don't know where these high reviews come from?!?!?! This beach may be pretty itself but the run down condos lining it, bottle caps, litter, and trash all over and loud people blasting music make it not a pretty place!! I did not like it nor did I feel safe. We did a quick walk and left. Luckily we were... More

Nice beach, just the right amount of quiet and calm mixed with the sounds of others enjoying the scene.

Perfect public beach day. You can rent chairs and umbrellas with ease. Lots of places to great food, snacks and drinks. You can also look for the flags to go parasailing,jet skiing or on boats. It's a clean beach and the people were all kind and fun.

We love Pine Grove Beach - it is nice & clean, has a few waves to buggy board and feels safe being so close to different hotels. Early Sunday mornings there are simply great.

Pine Grove is a nice clean beach with bigger waves and is great for boogie boarding. Umbrellas and chairs are also available - the guys that bring them to you on the west end of the beach just work on tips. This beach often gets confused with Isla Verde beach, which is west of ESJ towers. Pine Grove is east... More

Pine Grove Beach technically goes east from Dalia Street to the Courtyard Marriott. Once you hit the Marriott, the beach name changes to Carolina Beach, which is a government run beach with lifeguards. If you go west from Dalia Street, you will notice buildings jutting out into the water. You must go around those building to get to the beach... More

Due to my last trip to Puerto Rico, I had quite some high expectations. Instead I wound up with paying $14 for a beach chair and umbrella, 47 insect bites and a view of pigeons flocking nearby. This used to be my "go to" spot.

I am posting this review as Pine Grove Beach, because although we accidentally ended up further down the beach, our San Juan experience was exactly what I was hoping it would be. I asked my taxi driver to take us to Pine Grove Park - he said, "No, I'll take you further down, it will be easier to find a... More
