“Nice clean beach”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

We recently visited ocean park beach on several occasions at various times of day. In the mornings (before noon) there is hardly anyone on the beach. Those that are, give you a wide region to yourself. The water is warm and the beach is kept clean.

“Nice & relaxing beach”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Ocean Park beach was better than Isla Verde beach, in my opinion, because it wasn't too crowded and the water seemed a brighter shade of blue than Isla verde. There are plenty of vendors to get drinks and snacks from. We particularly enjoyed the jello shots offered by a very bubbly lady who sang and danced to us while she served them. There is also a bar close by where you can order food and sit at one of their many little tables by the sand which is lovely at sunset. Definitely recommend this beach!

“A very good beach”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

This is a very nice beach and not as crowded as the Isla Verde beach zone. They have a large public restroom and plenty of vendors to buy snacks or drinks. Whenever, you see a storm brewing over the ocean you need to start heading for shelter right away. These storms move in very fast and always leave people getting themselves and their items soaked.
Please note that there is are horrible rip currents and under tows, along the coast line here. A drunk person had to get saved by me and another gringo tourist on one occasion, who did not use common sense when entering the water here.

“Best beach in San Juan”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Ocean park is for sure the best beach in San Juan! Stay close to the volleyball area or the little 'bar' where the most friendly guy is selling lovely healthy things, such as smoothies, acai bowls and sandwiches.
