Beach is ok, kinda tan looking sand . Water isn’t really clear unless you go offshore island hopping. Not terrible beaches by any means but Florida beaches are way nicer.

Isla Verde and Carolina's public beach are the best and closest beaches near San Juan. Right next to the airport and other interesting places to visit.

Went down to Carolina Beach for a family reunion. We had a great time. The beach was clean and the water was really warm. The waves were fun to jump in and boogie board.

Fantastic beach. Get there early on weekends and holidays, parking can be a problem late in the day.
