  • Although there are better beaches they are difficult to reach. This beach adjacent to the tender pier is the main attraction of this village which has many stalls selling both food and souvenirs...  more »
  • Main beach in the tourist spot of San Juan. Beautiful spot to watch the sunset or lay on the beach, lots of boats so probably not the best place to swim  more »

  • Beautiful location. Will definitely return!
  • A beautiful sunrise and sunset - if you want a great spot with live music and free entertainment; walk down to the beach volleyball and sit on the bleachers to watch the sunset! Grab a beer from the bar next door and enjoy!
