Condado Beach, San Juan

#1 of 19 in Parks in San Juan
Beach · Nature / Park
Walk on golden sands beneath lofty palms at Condado Beach, a clean and picturesque beach, despite its urban surroundings. Large waves make for difficult swimming conditions at the beach, but if you’re into bodyboarding or surfing, you'll appreciate the swell. Those who prefer a more relaxing beach experience can kick back and wait for a beautiful sunset. The beach offers little in the way of shade, but you can hire loungers or bring your own umbrella and set up for the day.

  • The water was rough and the red flags were out when we were there early June, 2021. Escambron beach is safer and has shade.  more »

  • One of the most epically beautiful beaches on the island that is consistently rated among the top 15 most incredible beaches in Puerto Rico. Everything happens close by, all the top hotels and resorts are close as well as restaurants. The sunsets are beautiful here. It is a bit touristy but it is a great spot to be.
  • Nice place to relax in town
  • The beach is pretty dirty. Filled with trash and seaweed. If you’re looking to just lay back and listen to the waves then it will be nice for you. If you have kids and are looking to take a dip or some family fun, try a different beach
  • We were looking for a beach close to San Juan and were torn between ocean park and Condado. We were so happy with our decision to visit Condado. We paid $25 for two chairs and umbrella and they also had drink and food service. Next to Ben and Jerry’s and lots of other great food. The water was clean, the breeze was perfect and the view was immaculate. The perfect beach day close to the city.
  • Probably the most beautiful beach we’ve seen. Only downside is the rocks you have to cross before getting in to the ocean.
