Condado Beach is a short ride from Old San Juan. It is centrally located to restaurants, shops and hotels and is a lovely beach. From last year, there seemed to be less trash and litter. The wind was a bit strong so sand was blowing everywhere and made it difficult to sunbathe and the ocean was a bit rough with a strong undertow, but just being on the beach in 86 degree sunny weather was absolutely awesome so I surely don't want to sound like I am complaining! Great spot!

Condado beach is very centrally located and easily accessible in the touristy areas of New San Juan. The beach is nice and the water is refreshing. There are at times lots of people, but that isn't a problem. One of the major downsides of this beach is the amount of shade that the beach gets in the afternoon. The person, or people, who designed the beach resort area did a poor job at planning. After midday or so, it is harder and harder to find a good place for sun because the overshadowing of the hotels. The hotels are entirely too close to the beach. Therefore, be prepared to move a few times if you wish to stay under the sun. If you like shade then this may be the beach for you. That being said, the beach is clean.

This is really an update of a previous review. This beautiful beach used to be full of waste but now the Tourism Agency is taking care of it and we have a cleaning service that comes every day and of course the beach is now much much nicer, you can always find a nice shady spot to sit under the palm trees, walk, surf, quiet. You can choose between the lagoon, or on the other side from the "Dos hermanos" bridge all the way to Ocean Park.
Puerto Rico still needs to be nicer to tourists but it is definitely improving.

What a great beach to have on the doorstep if you're staying in Condado. It was very quiet everyday we went and we were occasionally among the first on the beach at 10am. Parts of the beach are in shadow after noon due to the high rises, but the beach is wide and sandy enough to enjoy all day. We enjoyed the beach chairs at the front of the Atlantic Beach Hotel where there are friendly staff and good simple food with beach service.
