“Nice Beach in Locals area”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Our B+B was one block from Ocean Park Beach. Beach has wider sandy area fronting recreational park and narrow sandy area extending eastward fronting homes. The water is warm with soft sand. Kitesurfing is popular here. Mostly seemed to be visited by locals in the area. Ample parking area at beach. The eastern part for the beach has some rocky areas near the shoreline and also there was a lot of seaweed churning in the surf. Very different vibe from Condado Beach.

“Great Beach”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

Although we did not get to spend as much time on the beach as I would have liked, the beach was certainly very nice. Not too crowded so one could have their own space. Water was warm, no rocks. Very nice!!

“It is a place for families, teenagers, and locals.”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

It is a beautiful beach. Many people live there, so you will see all sorts of people walking their dogs or jogging . for some reason it is the favorite beach for young people, so at times it gets loud with music and a lot of water sports as well as beach boleyball And whatever is the latest fashion in sports. In the weekends and holidays, you will never see more beautiful girls per square feet in the world. The waves could be a little hi unless you walk to the right end of the beach, but the people there are not as beautiful and it is not a very safe area. Keep,to the left near the big tall buildings.

“Good Local Beach”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

We stayed at Doubletree Hotel San Juan. It took only 10 minutes walk to Ocean Park Beach from the hotel. It was Friday evening and not so crowded. It looked like most people were local. The beach was clean, but I was not impressed so much.

“Love the waves!”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Maybe not the best waters for kids but dang for adults is awesome. The waves are rough. I tore the top of my foot open when I was crushed by a wave but it was still awesome. The sun was hot, the icy treats were cold and there is plenty of room to walk, run, relax and swim.
