Balneario El Escambrón

San Juan, Puerto Rico
Managed by Blue Flags

Balneario El Escambron is a Blue Flag beach for the 2021 season.*

El Escambron beach is located near the main cruise port in Puerto Rico making it accessible for many visitors and residents. Old San Juan is directly to the east and the city's famous fortress can be seen from the beach. The beach features clear waters along 150 metres of sand situated between two rocky promontories and an offshore reef which creates calm waters ideal for swimming and bathing. El Escambron is part of a larger recreational facility (Third Milennium Park) which offers visitors many facilities within a short distance, including bike lanes, parking, restaurants, and showers.

*A Blue Flag beach is one that meets strict water quality and safety criteria. These beaches are certified annually as being clean, accessible, eco-friendly, and having great water quality!

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is still essential. Only go to the beach if you are able to keep 6 feet or 2 meters away from others. Follow the instructions provided by your local health authorities. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread.
