While there is a small beach across from the capital building of Old San Juan, this town is not exactly considered a popular beach destination.  This should by no means be considered a negative for those preparing a getaway here -- the surrounding area of San Juan, Isle Verde, and Condado is filled with great beaches that are within easy reach.
