|About these ratings|
If you're staying in San Juan there's a good chance you'll never venture farther than Condado Beach. For many sun lovers, that's just fine. Condado is framed by a string of high-rise hotels and resort complexes, plus its ground-zero for water sports and beach bars in Greater San Juan. Families often forego Condado for one of the government-run beaches, or balnearios, because the former beach's tide is often too strong for young swimmers.
Travelers say you won't be disappointed with Condado, as long as you recognize it's more of a city beach. According to a Virtual Tourist traveler, San Juan beaches like Condado are "convenient solutions to relax and enjoy on a minor but still-decent tone the Caribbean sun and the ocean."
Condado Beach is open from dawn to dusk.
