Condado Beach – San Juan, Puerto Rico
Condado is 10-minute drive from the airport Old San Juan (where San Felipe del Morro is). It’s a favorite destination for the tourists from all ove the world, and the location isn’t the only reason. Condado sits just beyond Gran Ventana al Mar plaza, and the nicest section fronts the San Juan Marriot Resort & Stellaris Casino.
You will love Condado because of it’s calm, Check out El Escambron, a Blue Flag Beach just a half-mile from here with fantastic views of the fortress in Old San Juan. We found Escambron really alive on the weekends, with the locals playing dominoes. El Escambron has a great area for snorkel as well.
Isla Verde Beach – San Juan, Puerto Rico
At San Juan area one of the best place for tourist is Isla Verde. It’s a majestic, 200 feet wide strip of that genuine light tan sand and surf that is so gentle, you’ll say you’ve found paradise. At Isla Verde you found all the amenities are, and we found the beach just as nice.
Pull up a chair and umbrella, because Isla Verde is one beautiful beach. With nice people having a good time, you could sit for hours and literally people watch. But here, you could write your own screenplay because everything is right here. You have the Casinos close by, the resorts, the water sports, the dining, and the mystique of wondering who may be sitting near you.
Pinones Beach – San Juan, Puerto Rico
San Juan city limits the most scenic drive is up coastal Highway 187. Along Highway 187 is Pinones, where beach goers beat a path to because of the wonderful strip of sand. There are still traces of hurricane Hugo which hit in 1989. But the best thing we liked about Pinones is the paved bike path that runs some six miles through mangroves, rock formations, and hugs the coast.
Luquillo Beach – Luquillo, Puerto Rico
Across the bay of Wyndham is beautiful Luquillo Beach. Some say it’s the nicest “balneario” on this coast. You can found over a mile of nice hard fine sand lined by an old coconut plantation. Luquillo Beach is a Blue Flag facility.
There are lifeguards at Luquillo Beach, along with changing rooms, bathrooms, and a recycling station – nice! You’ll fine shaded picnic areas which also come in handy for the afternoon rain showers that develop off the El Yunque mountain rainforest.
