This was the first beach we visited it was ok but nothing I'd really die to go back to. Parking areas were very dirty. The beach was ok but there are much better. The best thing is all the kiosks with food, drinks and gifts there. Was very nice to walk over to a kiosk for a bite and back... More

Living on the east coast and on Long Island, I we go to the beach alot. The great thing about our Long Island beaches is the soft sand and the good surf for boogie boarding. That is why our family enjoyed Luquillo Beach in Puerto Rico so much. Is was DIFFERENT from what we are use to. The sand was... More

During our week stay in early July at the Wyndham Resort we visited Luquillo beach on two different occasions. Great place for kids to go in the water and anyone who does not know how to swim. The beach is like a pool no waves. Many locals visit this place. We went during the middle of the week and it... More

To be combined with a trip to El Yunke. You can rent umbrellas or try sitting in the shade of a palm tree (if you don't want too much sun). Have facilities for changing. Try the food kiosks near there for great local food.

This is my first review I have ever written, but I have to write it. I hope it saves someone time and money. We hired a private tour to take us to the rain forest and loquillo beach from isla verde. With 3 kids the rain forest is a major hike and ice cold waterfalls. Loquillo beach is filled with... More

Like most of the beaches on the north coast, there's plenty of sand and great 82-degree water to enjoy. Easy parking and not very crowded. If you're looking for a beach in the vicinity, this is as good as any.

Having been to many beaches, I was disappointed with the beaches in Puerto Rico. The sand on Luquillo Beach is the hottest I have ever felt. One had to run to make it from one's chair to the water without scalding one's feet. The water is very still -- too still. There are no waves at all. Everyone was just... More

We visited the beach after the rain forest and enjoyed our afternoon greatly! We rented an umbrella for 10 bucks and set up. We were right behind the kiosks of food which was great when we got hungry. The food was awesome! Go to the stands where lots of people are hanging out to make sure you get fresh food.... More

there is a state run beach in luquillo that is beautiful and clean. if you go to the beach by the food kiosks be prepared for a lot of trashy people and trash on the beach.
