Create an itinerary including Condado Beach
Walk on golden sands beneath lofty palms at Condado Beach, a clean and picturesque beach, despite its urban surroundings. Large waves make for difficult swimming conditions at the beach, but if you’re into bodyboarding or surfing, you'll appreciate the swell. Those who prefer a more relaxing beach experience can kick back and wait for a beautiful sunset. The beach offers little in the way of shade, but you can hire loungers or bring your own umbrella and set up for the day. Work out when and for how long to visit Condado Beach and other San Juan attractions using our handy San Juan online road trip planner.

  • Major sand flea bites here in the late afternoon. I suffered all night from a 30 minute walk on the beach around 4:30pm.

  • The beach of Condado is a very popular beach among tourists in San Juan craving a Caribbean beach resort experience with all the vibrant life of a city just steps away. It attracts diverse crowd, from families to famous celebrities. If you want to play on the water, you can enjoy windsurfing, a very popular watersport in Condado. all the top hotels and resorts are close as well as restaurants. Well , despite tempting Condado Beach is not safe for swimming or bathing, the water has very dangerous currents. Neither adults nor children should be swimming at Condado Beach. Nearby, you can walk to Playita del Condado, (Playita means small) a small beach with calmer water, better for swimming and doing a little snorkeling. We just came here, clicked few pics, dipped feet in sea water, wander around and moved to Playita condado. Ps: I did not see any shower-bathroom here.
  • Very beautiful beach near the old capital. They have some good food trucks nearby. The waves are pretty strong and it can get crowded during peak hours. I did not see any life guards, so swim at your own risk.
