We walked the beach nearly every day during our visit. It is clean and you can walk a long way. We especially had fun picking up sea glass...there was lots of it. Don't miss the man selling frozen ice...it was delicious and refreshing!

While being walking distance to Condado, this beach is where the locals go. Open and expansive with fewer tall buildings towards the west. Very active beach with people playing volleyball, slacklining, paddle ball, and lots of kite surfers. You can even get kite surfing lessons if you are interested.

Stayed here with my family, we are only 10 feet from the beach. The sand is nice and soft, good police presence and the occasional vendor. We bought Sangria and Pinchos. Delicious! People are friendly, the water is a bit rough but made for an exciting swim.

A beach is a beach is a beach ultimately. If you are looking to just relax and hear the sounds of the ocean this is fine.

Don't get me wrong—with few exceptions waterfront is water front. But...the ocean here isn't the calmest, the beach not the cleanest, the water not the bluest, and the surrounding buildings not the most elegant or beautiful. That being said, this is a public beach that connects more or less with many of the other beaches nearby and you can virtually... More

This beach was really nice. The two times we went, it was not too crowded and there were a few spots in the shade. You have to be careful when swimming since there is some decent size rocks in the bottom of the ocean, but they are easily visible if you look, and not everywhere. The beach is pretty clean... More

Ocean Park beach was very close to the AirBNB that we stayed in. It's an awesome, free beach! You can bring alcohol to the beach (glass is discouraged) Pack a cooler and some chairs to catch some sun! The waves were awesome when we visited in June 2016- not too big, but just the right size to play in. The... More

Perfect waves! Love diving into them. This scenic beach is perfect for walking, swimming and surfing the waves. Nice friendly crowd and lots of people bring their friends and family and set up for a picnic type day at the beach. Puerto Rico at its best!

This is mixed crowd beach, families as well as the younger crowd. It can be rather noisy with groups of young people playing loud music.Easy access through Ocean Park or Parque Baldorioty. This is a nice yellow sand beach. It can be rough in the the winter months but in the summer it's generally calm. There are no bathroom facilities... More
