We read about the beach online and decided to give it a try. Sand is soft, plenty of parking and never too crowded. Decent size waves but not too much for average swimmers. Vendors on beach for drinks and ice cream. Sufficient shade to keep from burning if you are fair skinned like me.

I stayed in a vacation rental on the same street as this beach in feb. 2017. The beach is beautiful and not crowded at all. It is very wide and you will have no problem finding a spot to relax, sunbathe, or find some shade. The waves tend to be bigger at this beach, I seen some people trying to... More

We absolutely loved Ocean Park beach. It was a lot less crowded than the other beaches by all hotels. The sand was course but still soft and the waves were quite large and strong but that's what made it so fun!! They were perfect for body boards or surfing.

We came here twice on our trip to PR since it was so close to our hotel. The first day, the water was calm and great for relaxing in. A few days later, there were huge waves and rip currents, just depends on the day.

Public beach situated between the two main hotel areas. As such more used by locals. Clean and with some welcome shade at the back of the beach. Felt safe but no lifeguards and the sea was choppy (but warm) in January.

Nice breezy beach. Very private, lots of windsurfers and lots of space to walk and enjoy the beautiful water.

We sat on this beach to wait for our room to be ready on the morning we got off the cruise ship. It was a Sunday and a lot of the locals were enjoying it too.

Beautiful soft white sand and very clean. Waves were quite high and strong so not the best for children. Situated in front of a fairly busy road but this didn't distract. Not many facilities and no toilets. Would recommend.

Spent a day here during our vacation. The waves were huge the day we visited but we had fun playing in the water. It seemed to be a great place for windsurfing and kitesurfing as well. There were locals and tourists alike enjoying picnics, and just relaxing and hanging out on the beach. A couple of vendors were walking around... More
