Ocean Park Beach, San Juan

4.3
#2 of 13 in Parks in San Juan
Visit a stretch of the coast frequented mainly by locals, but gaining an international following, at Ocean Park Beach. Located at the point where an upmarket residential neighborhood meets the sea, the beach has a relaxed vibe and usually remains sparsely crowded. Water sports enthusiasts, such as windsurfers, make up the majority of beach users, as the waves can be too rough for swimmers, especially small children. The long beach has been sympathetically punctuated by signs of development, meaning you won't find yourself too far from a restaurant, beach bar, or hotel. However, their presence doesn't negatively affect the look or feel of the beach.

  • This is by no means the best beach in the island but is for sure one of the most popular for its location next to the big hotels. Lots of water activities to do here like wind surfing etc.  more »
  • We visited for a couple of hours. Beautiful setting, the beach was nearly empty, free parking & entrance & there were promo teams out handing around free liquor. Great visit & would come back again.  more »
  • Very beautiful and calm Beach, doesn't have that turquoise blue typical of the Caribbean but well the branch. We spent an afternoon there is was pretty cool.

  • Ocean Park Beach is an escape from the tourist crowds of Condado. Full of locals and surfers, it's a place to enjoy the sun and ocean breeze. Pack a lunch - food options are limited. (And if you want a fresh piña colada out of the only beach-side stand, be sure to bring your own rum!)
  • In the morning is a quiet beach

Where to stay in San Juan

If you're looking for colonial-era lodgings, explore the streets of the old town area, where many grand buildings house guesthouses and hotels. The neighborhoods of Condado, Ocean Park, and Isla Verde contain the majority of beach resorts, with some glamorous and upscale options sitting alongside more laid-back and family-friendly ones. Rental bungalows just back from the beach, as well as side-street hostels, provide the city's budget-friendly places to stay.
