Beaches in Old San Juan

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.  

The Area's Beaches

You will find several beaches to consider, though all of them are found in neighboring areas. You can click on the name of the beach for a detailed guide to that particular stretch of sand.

Condado Beach

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.

A second place to consider is Ocean Park. Located between Condado and Isle Verde Beaches, Ocean Park is a wide expanse of golden sand fronting the turquoise Caribbean. The area is lined with hotels, resorts, and condos as well as a number of sports complexes.

Isla Verde Beach: This stretch of beaches is located off Avenida Isla Verde.
