“My Favrote Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

Ok so i rented a guest house, Mont Caribe Guesthouse, in Ocean Pk and was so pleased that we had a private entrance across the street to Ocean Pk Beach. The beach is VERY clean and quiet.

The first day we went it was not crowded, a few vendors selling iceys and beer and very little police presence. The water was very clean and you can see right down to the ground.

The secon day we went it was 4th of July, the beach was packed with locals off from work enjoying their day off, all ages. They were not rowdy and very repsectful. There were some tourists there as well. You are allowed to drink on this beach with no trouble with the police if you like to enjoy drinks while at the beach. I had my liquor with me and wasnt bothered.


The thirs day we went we went early in the morning, about 830am, to get some early sun and swim in before our flight home. No one was on the beach but a few runners getting their jog on and a few people just relaxing in their chairs catching some morning sun. Also alot of dowg owners are on the beach early in the morning too.

This beach is definately i beach i like to frequesnt when i am in PR. Its clean, safe, and relaxing.

“Great beach but typical hustlers/vendors as expected”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

This is a great beach for the family. Lots of hotels are situated right on the beach, so I suggest staying close to the nicer hotels beach areas. There are several people trying to sell legal/illegal things as expected but we just politely declined and they didn't bother us. But we obviously couldn't say no to the snow-cone man!

“The Best Beach in PR”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

Ocean Park Beach is what Miami Beach used to look like 30 years ago. Picturesque shore, wonderful view, spacious shore, and the government does an awesome job of keeping up with the empty beer cans/bottles from the locals trashing the beach on the weekends.

“Heaven on Earth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

Stayed at Tres Palmas so we had access to both the beach in front and Ocean Park Beach. Nice swimming area with gentle waves, bathroom and nice white sand.
