Pull up a chair and umbrella, because Isla Verde is one beautiful beach. All the locals know the best place to go around the San Juan area is Isla Verde. It's a majestic, 200 feet wide strip of that genuine light tan sand and surf that is so gentle, you'll say you've found paradise. Most people tend to stay toward the El San Juan Resort & Casino and the ESJ Towers Condo Hotel. That's where the amenities.
Plus, this beach beats most for enjoyable swimming with nice wave action and the not too big surf. Sit for a little and you'll see people enjoying kayaks and jet-skis. Families trek here all weekend long, and hate to go back home.
When you're hungry, you'll find Isla Verde Avenue full of restaurants. Do yourself a favor and take a break from the fast food. Order some delicious take-out Cuban sandwiches or their awesome shrimp mofongo from the local Mi Casita which is in the Plazoleta de Isla Verde. Take the sandwiches to sea - and sit on tables oceanfront, or simply in the sand and watch the action.
Make sure you check out San Juan Waterfun with everything you can imagine in water sports. They have the kayaks and Hobies and everything in between, including the fun banana boat ride!
