If you’re looking for the best “beach experience” in the San Juan / Metro tourist area, then Isla Verde in the town of Carolina (east of the aforementioned districts of San Juan) is the place to stay to enjoy white sand, crescent beaches and the best ocean swimming conditions in the Metro area. Isla Verde has 2 wide crescent beach areas (each about 1 mile long). There are beachfront resorts, hotels, and guest houses on or within walking distance of the beach and a variety of water sports.
There are many restaurants along Isla Verde Avenue within walking distance of the hotels and resorts. Those that wish to explore the island of Puerto Rico will have easy road access to great points of interest. Isla Verde is the closest resort destination to the San Juan International Airport.
