So what about the area?
Isla Verde Beach is to Puerto Rico’s San Juan what Ipanema Beach is to Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro. It is stylish, upscale, and the place to be seen. It is also considered one of the best municipal beaches in San Juan. Meaning Green Island in Spanish, Isla Verde draws beach-lovers from all over for many desirable high points, including plenty of fashionable, upscale hotels, a thriving beachfront spilling over with restaurants and cafes, and a hip, urban vibe. The crescent shape and bustling atmosphere take center stage in this exciting area of Puerto Rico’s capital city.
Begin putting together a picture of Playa de Isla Verde San Juan with a long, curving beach topped with light, tan-colored sand on the northeast coast. Back it by tall palms that nicely blend the line of San Juan hotels behind into a more natural scene. Add all these elements together and you’ve got an ideal, urban beach filled with a mix of trendy folks, tourists, and families enjoying the best beach activities and warm Puerto Rico sun and water. Adjacent to Isla Verde Beach is Carolina Beach, offering some more amenities and services.
There are plenty of things to do along the shores of Isla Verde Beach. There is a popular beach shop offering banana boat rides, parasailing, and Hobie Cat and wave runner rentals. The rentals can be taken out by the hour or by half and full days. Diving off the main shore is also a possibility and there are several dive shops that can take you out on the water. Often dive operators suggest diving off shores located 30 to 45 minutes from Isla Verde due to Isla Verde’s low visibility. Isla Verde is still a good place to arrange a trip and if staying in the vicinity, dive tours take you to the best, nearby spots toward the east where visibility increases to between 20 and 50 feet. Cayo Diablo, part of an island chain on the east coast, is one of the most popular sites.
The gentle surf and wide beach (over 200 feet in width) are the most welcoming aspects of Isla Verde Beach. Snorkeling is a fun pursuit and though visibility isn’t magnificent, it’s still possible to have a look at small marine creatures and corals living in the surrounding reef. Water skiing, jet skiing, parasailing, and body boarding are other available and popular activities. Many of the shops and hotels lining the beach host special events and offer water sports and other beach activities. Note that holidays, weekends, and the summer months can get extremely busy, which means prior arrangements for many activities are necessary.
All along the strip of beach there are endless condos, hotels, and other high rises along with entertainment centers, and plenty of eateries to choose between, from upscale to budget. There are also numerous nightclubs, bars and chilled-out lounges around Isla Verde Beach, many near the shore to accommodate visitors which means nightlife is especially lively. There are two big-name casinos situated in Playa de isla Verde San Juan as well, and these are a big draw for tourists as several excellent area spas.
