“Extremely good beach at the north side of the island and very close to San Juan!”
Living in Dorado, very close to this beach I am very partial. However, I can describe objectively this beach. It is one of the best beaches around. Huge parking area, showers, a lot of places to eat and drink right in front and an open sea area as well as several protected by breakers.
Tip: with low tide if you walk eastbound right behind the Villas de Playa I condos you can walk over the reef, like walking on water. And if you walk westbound you'll get to Dorado Beach Ritz Resort. Get plenty of sunscreen!
If I remember correctly there's is a small fee for the parking, but there's free entrance to the "balneario".
