Escambron beach is a tropical paradise
The first beach, Playa 8, is found as you approach the cooling palm tree shade and the turquoise waters. You’ll notice this beach is protected by a coral wall that keeps the strong surf from coming in, creating a giant natural pool where you can swim, do a little snorkeling and also play. From here, you have a great vantage point to see the National Historic Site from a different point of view. You will also have views of the Capitol Building in Old San Juan.
To the east lies a small beach, Playa 9, but loved by families with small children for its shallow and very clear waters. Bring your snorkeling gear as the area is replete with fish to observe. Typically this beach is the most quiet with less crowds. From this beach you can enjoy sweeping views of the Condado and Ocean Park shores.

La Playita del Condado is known for it’s calm waters, easy access and outdoor gymnasium. You can also enjoy snorkeling and swimming in this beach’s shallow waters.
