Surfer's learner's beach during winter months. Good small waves. Good beach during rest of the year. Many condos around, though.

This still remains one of the best spots to check the surf swell size, direction and even surf if the surf is huge. Most places in san Juan blow out with too much surf or wind, but Pine Grove holds a large swell and filters it down to rideable size in the winter season. The summer time swells are flat.... More

It is cleaned every day. Perfect for walking, jogging, relaxing. There is massage, jet skis and if you're not staying at a resort you can pay for lounge chairs and umbrellas. Resort umbrellas are $10.

We were staying at the Hotel Caribe and couldn't stand the $18 chicken tenders, $15 dollar mixed drinks and $9 Medella beers so we were in search of a local beach where we could get coconuts, fish tacos, and tasty cheap drinks. We were lucky to have found this local spot right down from the Ritz in Isla Verde. There... More
