Uncrowded beach, beautiful sunsets

The beach in Isla Verde is supposedly less crowded than those in the main tourist area (Condado.) It is also very safe (police are riding their ATVs along the shoreline at all hours of the day and night), the water warm, and the sunset views incredible. The sand is a bit grainy and "shell"y, but not uncomfortable to walk on. The wave breaks are just big enough to be picturesque, but small enough to make it a safe beach for children to swim and play.

Moving east....

As you go east on the beach, there is a camping area, but after that, the beach is even less crowded. Again, it is not even very crowded in front of the hotels to begin with, so going east, you will probably have a big spot of sand and water completely to yourself.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Uncrowded beaches, safe, BEAUTIFUL sunsets
  • Cons:Noise from airport is very loud; not much within walking distance of hotels.
  • In a nutshell:Good if you want creature comforts of hotel but don't want the crowds of Condado
