San Juan’s coastline

After a day of exploring the historic sights of San Juan, you’ll certainly be in need of a bit of beach time. The capital itself is home to a handful of popular beaches, but tucked away at the far end of the old town is Playa Peña, where locals come to get away from the hustle and bustle. It’s almost always empty, making it a true urban paradise.
