From CityScapes to BeachScapes…

Isla Verde does not offer designated bike lanes along with the main tourist areas, but there are yellow caution signs for drivers to “share the road” with bicycles.  Bicycling is a popular sport in the metro area, locals are known to share the road well, of course, ride with caution.  If you’re staying in the Isla Verde tourist area and riding on a busy avenue is not your ideal bicycling scenario, no worries; just a short distance away you can ride along Pinones, one of the most naturally scenic trails in the metro area.

If you’re bicycling with children we recommend you go to the nearby bike trail in the next town of Loiza with designated bike routes without the dangers of automobile traffic.

Bike Route

Coming east from Ocean Park, Calle Loiza turns into Avenida Isla Verde at the San Juan / Carolina border and leads to the beachfront town of Isla Verde, Carolina.  You will pass a large cemetery, condominiums, and eventually beachfront resorts on your left, shops and restaurants. Best of all you’ll pass many access points for the beaches of Isla Verde.

You can turn left onto Calle Tartak and ride north to visit El Alambique – Isla Verde Beach, or take a right onto Calle Tartak which will take you past the Verdanza Hotel and Embassy Suites and leads to Jardin de Isla Verde (Isla Verde Garden).  This is a park under renovation offering a safer ride for families with children right in the city.

You can also turn left onto Calle Violeta (just before the Ritz-Carlton resort) and ride north to the end to Pine Grove – Isla Verde Beach.

To continue riding east to the Carolina Public Beach and beyond, follow Ave. Isla Verde east through Isla Verde and past the Ritz-Carlton and Courtyard Marriott resorts where a paved bike path begins along the north side of PR-187.  Along this path, there are 2 gated entrances for free access into the beautiful beach of Balneario de Carolina (Carolina Public Beach).  The bike path continues east past this beach and towards Piñones, Loiza offering great views of the Atlantic beachfront and coastline.
