Playa Escambron

Located just one block from our property, Escambron is the only protected swimming beach in Old San Juan. has a very informative article about Playa Escambron.

Below, we have included an excerpt and a link to read the article in its entirety:

"Balneario El Escambron is a little beach, just outside of Old San Juan, that is part of the Blue Flag beach program. It is located in Puerta de Tierra section of town, next to the old Normandie Hotel.

Escambron is described by many as a nice family-friendly beach. It has a small crescent of clean sand and usually calm waters, thanks to the coral reef a short distance from the beach. It also is lined with trees, which provide lots of shade when you feel you have had enough sun. There are lifeguards on duty during the day (8:30am – 5:00pm). You can also see some cool fish if you want to snorkel. We find the best snorkeling (and really it is not good, but it is something!) by following along the floating ropes that border the swimming area." Read the entire article
