We stayed on the very quiet and serene Luquillo beach where you can snorkel, boogie board or just relax in the sand. The view is wonderful and the locals are nice.

Had lunch at a little restaurant bar on the boardwalk then walked down the beach. Found a lovely little lagoon (think Gilligan's Island!) on the beach, put a blanket down under the trees, and rested my head for a few. What an amazing site to look up and see coconuts in the trees above!!!

What a stunning beach! I couldn't believe it. Sand is super soft and kind of think. Felt like silk. Water is crystal clear, warm, and calm. I think we were the only other non-locals on the beach. Around us were mostly families which we loved. You're close to lots of great restaurants, which we explored after our fun day in... More

Luquillo Beach is absolutely beautiful! It' s a beach known to the locals so you won't find crowds there. The rock formations add to the crystal clear water. There are two sections of this beach one where the water is calm and the other side where the Atlantic breaks along the shore. So very beautiful a must while in Puerto... More

Luquillo Beach is a lovely stretch of sandy beach with a gentle shore break that is popular with local families. there's a row of restaurants along the beach offering many cuisines and specialties. sadly, the beach is used and abused--there's trash everywhere, and in such a depressing quantity.

First, you must pay a fee per car - like $4. But it is well worth it. Because it is a paid beach, there are amenities there such as bathrooms, lockers and food shacks. The beach itself is like no place I've ever been. There are no waves and the water is cool and clear. Great beach for young children... More

We love this beach and have been coming here for years. It's a lovely mix of tourists and locals. We never come on the weekends because it gets too full. We were here in April but sadly on this trip (August) we noticed the beach was littered. That said we will continue to remain loyal. We've been to beaches all... More

The beach is beautiful, the water is beautiful. You are greeted by sweet happy dogs when entering... but authorities at the beach poison them and watch them die in plain sight of you and your children. It's a shame because up until that point I loved this beach, but I will never go back after that horrible experience.
