Nice place for a swim

We swam here right off the beach at the Condado Plaza Hilton--be very careful though if the tide is low as there are many sea urchins...they sneak up on you!

Lots of great water views all around. Lined with high rises, and lots of areas for boating and paddle boarding.

We had a corner room on our hotel. One side was the view of the ocean and the other side of the lagoon. We saw people kayaking and doing stand up paddle boardig.you could also see the cruise ships pulled in on the other side.

We had a great time kayaking, spent $35 for the hour. The little beach was so cute and the water was calm. Saw many paddle boarding and the price was very good.

We've over the bridge dozens of times without stopping but it's well-worth stopping and checking out Playita de Condado and the park. Great spot for picnics and easy parking in the Condado Hilton garage

This is a quiet lagoon with plenty of room to do some kayaking, paddle boarding and snorkeling with no motorized craft to interfere. The small public beach is nice enough, but most people will use the beach across the street which is on the Atlantic with plenty of surf. The Atlantic side beach had faucets for rinsing off sandy feet.... More
