The public side was very nice with a locker room style restroom, plenty of food and drinks from the wonderful Ed, visit his food stand if you are in the area.

The Luquillo police department were exceptional they showed up and... More

We had visited El Yunque Rainforest in the morning and had some time before the bio bay excursion so we decided to check out this popular beach. The beach was very beautiful, scenic and relaxing.I was, however, very disappointed in the condition of this beach. There was trash and cigarette butts everywhere. The locals should be ashamed of themselves for... More

I enjoyed myself at the beach. Clean & clear waters! I'm looking forward to going back next year! The horseback riding was awesome!

We stopped by after a full day at the rain forest. Our hotel, and my Fodor's Puerto Rico book, both said this was a nice beach 10 minutes from Yunque where you could enjoy the rest of your day. I asked a Puerto Rican friend of mine about this beach, and she told me it was "trashy", a "party beach",... More

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
