Relax on the sandy shores on a quiet day, or party with friends on weekends when things get more lively. There's plenty to do in the water from parasailing to waterskiing. If you'd rather stay on land, join a game of beach volleyball or pay a visit to one of the beachside bars or restaurants.
On the East coast of Puerto Rico, this beach is situated in the western part of Isla Verde, a neighborhood in San Juan; it's two miles (three and a half kilometers) to the South East of Condado District. If hustle and bustle isn't your style, you'll appreciate that beaches here are generally pretty quiet. This atmosphere is not for everyone, though. If you seek a fun and active spot, you're more likely to have fun at Isla Verde Beach, which is closer to all the action.
This stretch of beaches is located off Avenida Isla Verde.
Isle Verde Beach is a succession of beaches stretching for miles in front of San Juan's luxury beachfront communities and resort areas. Although there is some variation, the sands of these beaches are filled with tan colored sand and calm, aquamarine waters.
Of course, you could always try the shoreside restaurant right on Isla Verde Beach, which is the ultimate convenience for beachgoers. There are various types of dining experiences that vacationers can enjoy in Puerto Rico, but eating at the beach can be especially enjoyable. With this in mind, you might ask your hotel if they offer to pack picnic lunches for their guests. Otherwise, you could easily grab some of Puerto Rico's famous street food along the way.
Even if you plan to dine elsewhere, the snack bar on-site could come in handy. If available, you could also order lunch from one of the mobile vendors who operate at or near this spot.
Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, which is something to consider if you're bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside. Happily, the off-shore waters are fit for snorkeling, so bring along some equipment if you've been hoping to get in some underwater exploration. Isla Verde Beach is a haven for locals and tourists, so the crowd is always a good mix. The beach is most crowded on weekends, and practically deserted during certain daytime hours on weekdays.
The crowdedness here is affected by several things, like the time of year and day of the week. A few of Puerto Rico's beaches are almost untouched, while others are huge hot spots, particularly when tourism season is as its peak.
This pleasant stretch of sand known as Isla Verde Beach is on the East coast of Puerto Rico. It's located near Isla Verde Park, which is found a half mile to the south east, and it is one of a number of popular spots in the area.
Some may think that beaches and museums are an odd combination, but plenty of visitors find that museums like Museum Of Art Of Puerto Rico (found just a walk or cab ride away) offer a fun learning experience and help visitors understand Puerto Rico's interesting past.
