Beach
“Usually calm to small seas. Good for families, swimmers, SUP, snorkeling and hanging out. Can get very crowded on holidays. One side has paid parking, $3.90- no amenities. The other side has free parking, food vendors. Some people fish off the piers. Fun to jump off and swim in! Be a good swimmer for the jumps! With big swells, you will see surfers and bodyboarders. To the extreme west side is the surf break Gas Chambers. Use caution when waves are large. ”

Food Truck

“This outdoor food park, a local favorite, is a patchwork of cuisines dished out of kiosks and Airstream trailers, serving everything from Puerto Rican frituras (fried finger foods, like the alcapurria, a stuffed yuca or plantain fritter), Belgian-style fries, pizza, Southern-fried chicken, heavy-duty burgers and Mexican cantina nachos. BTW: Lote 23 also hosts events, which it promotes on social media, such as yoga sessions, film screenings, artisans’ markets and more. ”
