Relaxing is easy at Balneario El Escambron, a family-friendly beach with white sand and warm, clear waters.

  • This is one of my favorite public beaches. Since Hurricane Maria their public facilities were badly damaged so the public restrooms, parking and life guard stations are not operating at the moment. The water is still beautiful and so is the beach. Be careful with the undertow.
  • Beautiful, clean and peaceful. Nice walk way to beach. $5 all day parking. Restrooms and showers available. Sand and water in pristine conditions. Plenty of shaded areas under trees. Plenty of people grilling, the aromas were amazing!
  • Great beach with lots of shade. Easy to get too and beautiful water
  • Awesome urban beach. Beautiful water. Calm enough for kids to enjoy. Fun to see all the families enjoying the beach on the weekend!
  • Who needs a private beach when you can go to this one for free. Great $12 ride to the beach from cruise port, nice Sandy Beach with lifeguard, nice reef to see lots of beautiful fish, and shower to clear all the sand. This is a gem and should not be missed for your cruise excursion.
