Located just a few miles east of Carolina (about ten minutes from Isla Verde by car when there's no traffic), Piñones is a relaxed beachfront that comes alive with a bang on weekends, when locals swarm to its golden-sand beach, its numerous kiosks serving all kinds of crispy, fried and authentic goodies, and its pleasant boardwalk.

Throw in a gourmet eatery like Soleil Beach Club (which offers free transportation to and from your San Juan hotel), and you've got no excuse not to make the trip out here if you want a lovely change of pace from the capital.
