Blue sky thinking


For anyone craving a blissful tropical beach as spring showers land on Britain’s shores, San Juan’s Playa Isla Verde provides the perfect fix. After an eight-hour flight to the Puerto Rican capital from the UK, and a five-minute cab ride, visitors can find themselves standing on one of the most exquisite beaches in the Caribbean, luggage in hand. A mile-long crescent of sand backed by hammock-strung palms and tall apartment blocks, Playa Isla Verde ranks in the premier league of urban beaches, alongside Florida’s Miami Beach and Rio’s Copacabana – though the town beyond it is just as beguiling. Shake the sand from your sandals before storming the ramparts of San Juan’s 16th-century fortress – one of the oldest European structures in the Americas. Further beyond, get lost by wandering cobblestoned streets among the colonial townhouses and cafés of the old town, noisy with the rhythms of salsa after dark.

About Lonely Planet Traveller (UK)

In the April issue… Join us as we celebrate the 100th issue of the magazine, and look forward to the next hundred. For the occasion, we've found a unique destination for our Great Escape – Madagascar, an island that is almost a world in itself. Other features take in film directors' favourite shooting spots in Paris; the Bay Area of California on the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love; and Lisbon, a city best understood through the Portuguese emotion of 'saudade'. Plus, discover our magazine staff's most memorable moments in putting together 100 issues, and much more
