 Access

As a starting reference point, begin at the traffic light next to the Metropol Restaurant (very well known landmark--most natives should be able to point you in the right direction to it) in Isla Verde. Take 187 east to the next intersection, from traffic light to intersection will take you about 15 seconds, turn left and drive straight down the small access road about 400 ft to the beach, find a parking and bingo your here. Park your car and as you walk onto the sand the break will be to your front-right. Most likely you'll see at least 5-6 people in the water surfing at any given time.

 Additional Information

Parking will probably be your biggest problem as it is very limited, if you cant find one then drive back to main road and go east about another 600 ft to the entrance for the last multistory building, this is a hotel that has a pay parking lot, its not too expensive and your car is quite safe, plus there is easy access to the beach, but now you'll be to the right of the break.
As for surfing the spot well, not much to say as it is just a beach break, except bring a good attitude, relax, and have fun as there are a lot of beginners here, and they don’t know all the unwritten official rules of wave selection and right of way.

Useful data-Almost all sand bottom except were the take off area is, but it is too deep anyhow to touch bottom there, wave reforms as it hits a sand bar on the inside, very shallow here (about 2-3 ft)and sometimes quite hollow. Many times there will be a fun backwash that will launch you in the air if you time it right. Wave breaks left and rights with much longer lefts. Will start working on 3-5ft swell. Works best on any swell bigger than 6 to 8 ft the bigger the better. I have seen it pumping on a 12-15 ft swell, though just so you beginners don’t get the wrong idea and freak, the wave will only be about 4-5 ft face as the waves have to pass over an outside reef about a mile out in the ocean and lose most of their power.

General

Great spot to learn at.
Just about anyone who grew up in the San Juan Metro area has surfed here, especially when they were just starting out. (Even me) So I have fond memories of this place but I could swear the waves have gotten smaller over the years, or maybe I just got bigger,lol.
