This beach was minuets from our home stay on Atlantic Place. No matter what time of day we went, there was always plenty of space and a number of local vendors walking around selling beer, water, snacks and ice cream. Super fun!

We spent a wonderful last morning in Puerto Rico at Ocean Park Beach before heading home. We walked over from Andalucia Guest House and found a spot right near that entrance. The beach was fairly empty on a Thursday morning, but there were still some people and their dogs enjoying the water. The beach is very wavy, and can sometimes have a strong undercurrent. There's a lot of sand in the water near the shore, but once you get a bit further out (for me, a little below shoulder height in the water), it's so clear you can see the bottom. You can tell they clean the beach regularly, but it is an urban beach, so there was a little bit of litter -- but nothing excessive or gross. My friend spent the morning reading on the shore, while I bobbed around in the waves and watched the really strong swimmers go by further out. Later, we headed east (to the right as you are facing the ocean) and had an amazing beach front breakfast at Bellini Beach.
Great beach if you are staying in the area and like waves.

If your lucky enough to be at the beach around noon you may see a woman walking the beach saying "pollo, carne - empanadas". Definitely get some. They are delicious !!!!!
The beach is quiet and at times is windy. Sometimes the water is calmer other times the waves are big. Each day it's different. My only complaint is that they need to rake the beach, there is too much litter. Also there are a lot of dogs, which would be fine had they had responsible owners. Saw one dog take a dump right in front of some people and the owner just kicked sand over it ... Gross! It could be a beautiful beach if people took better care of it.

Beautiful quiet beach in a lovely neighborhood surrounded by great inexpensive (and expensive) restaurants. Small park nearby for children and a very big park a bit further away. Nice long walk into Old San Juan from here, or easy taxi ride.
Food truck arrives on weekends and some weekdays with yummy food and drinks. Weekends are busy with music and kids, but weekdays are very peaceful.
A few too many dogs,(and their droppings), otherwise wonderful.
