Ponce's boardwalk and beach area isn't so popular for swimming, but the people-watching and socializing are great.

Great place to go and eat finger foods. Still recovering so you can’t walk the boardwalk but the restaurants are open and good. Feeding the big fish sardines is cool.

La Guancha is beautiful beach harbor with many small local restaurants where you can enjoy the best puertorrican food. You can feed fish, sea birds and even yourself.

Nice boardwalk with kiosks along the way. Some have music. Local vendors are also along the boardwalk. The recent hurricane destroyed parts of it and it was been repaired.
