La Posita - Best beaches near San Juan, Puerto Rico

The capital city of San Juan is the most popular vacation destination in Puerto Rico for all it has to offer.  While the city offers some good beaches, some visitors wish to experience a beach that’s quiet with a casual island style.  We often choose to have a staycation in San Juan, and when we crave crystal clear waters, we head to the neighboring town of Loiza, a short half hour drive from Old San Juan / Condado area, right next to Isla Verde.   La Posita is a long beach on the Atlantic side with a rock wall creating a safe shallow natural pool protected from the strong surf, making it a great beach for families with small children.  Right across the street, there are food kioks serving traditional fried food.  Keep driving towards Loiza and you’ll end up at the famous Pinones area featured on the Travel Channel.  Pinones is a foodies paradise serving all kinds of traditional food that focus on flavor and keep the decor and ambiance simple and casual unique to the town of Loiza.  La Posita is a great stop for travelers who love to experience a more authentic island vibe.  You can get here by bike, there’s a bicycle trail from Isla Verde to La Posita Beach all the way to Pinones.  This was the first guide to include La Posita on the top ten beach list in 2016.
