Beaches in Condado

High rise hotels edge the shores of the beaches in Condado, where just one beach has a lifeguard during daylight hours.  The rest of the beaches are agreeably more beautiful to look at, but because the rip-tides can be dangerous and there are no lifeguards on duty, most knowing tourists avoid them.  These areas are more likely to be used by extreme watersports enthusiasts than swimmers. 

Pick Your Ideal Beach

You will discover a large selection of beaches to enjoy in and around the area. For a detailed article concerning any of these beaches you can click on the names of the ones you are interested in.

Condado Beach

Parque Beach: Parque Beach is located at the end og Avenida de Diego, just after the road crosses Avenida Ashford.

Another place for beach-goers to consider is Isla Verde Beach. Isle Verde Beach is a succession of beaches stretching for miles in front of San Juan's luxury beachfront communities and resort areas. Although there is some variation, the sands of these beaches are filled with tan colored sand and calm, aquamarine waters.

Escambrion Beach: Thanks to the coral reef that surrounds the crescent shaped Escambrion Beach, the waters are almost always calm. Ropes designate a swimming area, and beyond the rope is sanctioned for watersports.

The table directly below lists a few details regarding the beaches available in and around the area.
