Owner description: Ponce's boardwalk and beach area isn't so popular for swimming, but the people-watching and socializing are great.

The boardwalk is a nice place to hang out with friends and family. The environment is fun and happy. There are kiosks that serve food and drinks, music and on weekends live music. Beautiful views of the Caribbean sea and the nautical club next door. There is also a beach near the boardwalk where people can hang out as well. The boardwalk has an observation tower as well. If it's open and you get to go in, you will enjoy a nice view of the city.

We drove put here from Ponce one evening, The boardwalk is being restored and therefore is not completely open but is fun nonetheless. Pelicans wonder around panhandling. Children frolic. The bars play live music and make strong tropical drinks and tasty food. The sun sets over the yacht harbor...perfect.

We stopped by here for lunch on our drive from Humacao to Parguera. It was a great stop and a nice place to stretch our legs during the drive. The kiosks offered a variety of food with a nice view of the marina and bay. There were parrots nesting in the trees along the board walk and a large school of tarpon swimming around the marina dock.

I wouldn't mind returning to see it in full weekend splendor!

We love eating at the Luquillo kiosks but the ones here looked cleaner and well established. Food was similar, tasty. Thank heavens they are rebuilding the boardwalk. I would not walk on it with high heels on, too many large gaps in the planks.

Nothing fantastic about it for me. We did have fun though dancing and listening to all the loud music. It's located in a weird section of Ponce right by these huge metal structures. I don't know what they are but they freaked me out. Once you get the the boardwalk it is basically a strip on a bay with a lot of bars. We went at night and didn't see any vendors or cute little shops like I had hoped. But it was okay and I hear during the day you can feed the fish. Not bad to go and dance and drink and eat for a few hours.
