“This is the 2016 Best Urban Beach (USA Today – Reader’s Choice Award), this beautiful stretch beach (with 3 different beach zones: Pinegrove Beach, El Alambique Beach and Balneario de Carolina) is so unbelievably clean it’s hard to believe it’s urban at all. Great diversity of watersports, restaurants and nightlife. – Best Urban Beach 2016: http://www.10best.com/awards/travel/best-urban-beach/

It is a District of Carolina located east of Santurce (south western front of Piñones) next to the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport above the Teodoro Moscoso Bridge. Isla Verde is the area just outside the capital of Puerto Rico that links with the college town of Río Piedras and the residential counterpart surroundings of Hato Rey which includes the neighborhoods of Baldrich and University Gardens revolving around Golden Mile’s financial district. Here, you can get beach deck chairs for only a couple of dollars, and the staff of the respective hotel will bring them directly to the location you choose. The numerous hotel beach bars of Isla Verde invite you to enjoy an iced Piña Colada under one of the many tropical palm trees. There are more palm trees here, too, that are even more beautiful than the ones at Condado Beach. At some parts of the beach the swimming area is marked off with a mesh, behind which swimming would be too dangerous, also because of sportive activities going on at the beach, like jet skiing, for example. Isla Verde has very posh areas but is not too far from the Island’s largest public housing project, Luis Llorens Torres Residential Complex, which is actually within San Juan. Despite its closeness to this area, Isla Verde is very safe thanks to the heavy police presence in the area, in fact Carolina’s autonomous police department has a police station in the area.
