In view of El Yunque, this beach is where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean. Calm water, shade, and other amenities made this an enjoyable stop for a couple of hours. Even though it was pouring rain at the rainforest, this beach had sunshine. We carried our cooler and chairs from the hotel and enjoyed a peaceful afternoon sipping wine and... More

We couldn't go swimming due to a rough surf but we went wading and walking along an exquisite beach. Palm trees lined the beaches and shaded bathers while surfers were doing their thing out on modest sized waves. There was always a warm breeze and the view was incredible. The beach is not far away from the rain forest so... More

This is a local beach, so it isn't going to be as fancy as the hotel beach fronts you're used to. But the water is clear and gorgeous and there is water sports equipment available for rent. We grabbed a coconut water from the kiosks and basked in the sun for a few hours. I don't know where the bathrooms... More

OK, it was not as bad as my title would suggest though it did happen. We stopped here on our way back from the rainforest. None of the highway signs say "Luquillo Beach" so know the official Spanish name before you go. We took the exit based on a sign that indicated a recreation area and it turned out to... More

The beach is beautiful and the water is calm and turquoise blue! There are food vendors and u pay $1.00 and have access to bathroom and showers all day. Nice day spent at Luquillo Beach.

We came to checkout the beach and eat in one of the kioskos. We had a bad experience in kiosko mi favorito #49 eating food from the previous day(s). The beach itself is nothing special and I do think there is much better if you go west or head to culebra.

As part of the rainforest tour that we booked, one stop was at Luquillo Beach. Closer to the water, the sands are rich and soft, the water is beautiful and clear. The beach overall does not seem like it is immaculately maintained. The restrooms were scary, with stray cats walking around. The view is nice, and it is quiet and... More
