Balneario Carolina is long stretch of white sand just east of the Isla Verde area in San Juan. It has a parking lot, restrooms, and showers. There's a kiddie water park at the eastern end of the beach.

We visited the Vivo beach resort as an excursion during our recent cruise. The beach was quiet, spotlessly clean but the sea was very choppy the day we visited. Access to the sea was good with no shells or rocks underfoot. Vivo beach resort is...More
