The beaches in Condado by the Marriott & La Concha are too crowded for my taste. I prefer the beaches here. Just off Taft Street is a gorgeous stretch of beach with lots of space to lay out your stuff, listen to the ocean and not hear the conversation of others. If you walk east, away from Condado & Old San Juan, it’s just as beautiful and un-crowded. This area appears to have more locals and is kept very clean. I love it!

Not sure, but was told by many that its the nicest beach in the area. Lots of locals hang there.

Pros:
easy, free parking
warm water
long beach

cons:
not the clearest water
no fresh water showers or bathrooms
run down houses on the beach

Not a must-see beach, but if you have to get to a beach and limited on time or resources then its a good option.

Beautiful local beach with easy parking nearby. Go to nearby "Kasalta Bakery" first and grab a picnic lunch. Enjoy PR...as the locals do!

We stayed at the Andalucia Guest House, on McLeary St. and were lucky enough to have Ocean Park as our "home beach". The sand was raked each morning and the area was clean. Families, singles, couples... lots of people on the weekends, not many during the week. All respectful and happy. Dogs allowed (not really on leashes), as is drinking on the beach and in the water. Occasionally vendors would roam the sand with water or snacks available.

In January, the water was probably in the mid-70s. Very nice all around, clear. No lifeguards, but no undertow, and you could go out quite a distance before it got deep.

The area we were in (the cross street was San Miguel) was the best; a bit further west into Condado and a bit further east, past Parque Barbosa, wasn't as nice, but still enjoyable.
