The beach of Condado is a very popular beach among tourists in San Juan wishing for a beach resort experience. Condado Beach has a Miami Beach vibe. Besides palm trees, the beach is framed by luxury resorts and high-rise condos. Some of the most popular beachfront resorts in Puerto Rico are on Condado Beach. If you want to play, there are a variety of water sports offered and waiters come around for that refreshing piña colada if you wish. If you’re not staying at one of the beach resorts, you can find beach loungers and umbrellas for rent.
If you have a family with children, be aware that the waters are not the best for swimming. Nearby, you can enjoy Playita del Condado (Condado’s little beach) with calm and shallow waters perfect for families with a lifeguard.
You can access Condado beach through Ventana al Mar Park on Ashford Avenue. There’s off street parking, although limited. There is a convenient parking garage right across from Venta al Mar park for an affordable daily rate of $6 – $10.
