This is by no means the best beach in the island but is for sure one of the most popular for its location next to the big hotels. Lots of water activities to do here like wind surfing etc.

We visited for a couple of hours. Beautiful setting, the beach was nearly empty, free parking & entrance & there were promo teams out handing around free liquor. Great visit & would come back again.

Favorite beach in the area. Once in awhile you can find a food cart. You can even enjoy one of the beach hotel restaurants. Nice sandy beach but parking is hard to find close by have to walk a bit.

I loved that this beach was not crawling with children and was quiet! Within walking distance of many hotels, etc. Kasalta, Ocean Park Cafe and Paulina Escanes are all a short walk away! There was a little trash around, but not much.

Free parking, quiet and nice view, the clean and blue water was perfect and you have to bring your food and beverage, because there is not much to buy, just people or icecream man that comes by.

A really nice hot day, perfect for a swim but the sea was rough as so we didn't bother getting wet, no one else was in the water so figured probably best we didn't get in.

This beach is very nice and less crowded than those closer to condado or near the airport. Seems to be clean. Lots of kite boarders and windsurfers fun to watch. Roped swimming areas.
