Parque Beach

Parque Beach is so named because it is backed by a city park called Parque el Indio. Visitors can split their time between the beach and the park, making this stretch of Puerto Rico coast line double the fun.

Set near the heart of Condado District, Parque Beach is on the North East coast of Puerto Rico. You should consider dropping by even if you aren't staying very close. Eventually, visitors notice that beaches throughout Puerto Rico tend to be pretty quiet, but Parque Beach is the exception.

How to Access The Beach
Parque Beach is located at the end og Avenida de Diego, just after the road crosses Avenida Ashford.

Amenities and Ambiance

Parque Beach is lined with well manicured tropical palms, and features fine tan colored sand and deep blue waters.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, so if you're visiting with small children you might want to consider a different location.

Be mindful that Parque Beach's immediate surroundings are highly urbanized, so show up early.
