Go enjoy an afternoon in Luquillo

The beach is nice and the waters are calm. Plus you can visit all the food stands for lunch and dinner. After dark I would not recommend visiting as safety can be an issue (just... read more

The beach is nice and the waters are calm. Plus you can visit all the food stands for lunch and dinner. After dark I would not recommend visiting as safety can be an issue (just like everywhere else in PR). But for a day trip this is a highly recommended spot for a family or a group of friends to...

We came here after a visit to El Yunque to relax and we were pleasantly surprised. The beach was very clean and sand was very nice. We walked to an area where people tended to congregate and left our stuff on the sand while we went into the water. We never felt unsafe leaving our stuff on the sand as... More

Peaceful waters enjoyed a relaxing day at the beach with some nice cold beers. Beautiful sandy beach.

Luquillo has several beaches. To the north, there is a string of many food booths just behind the beach and free parking between them and the water. The problem is there is no one to clean the trash left behind. Just to the south, there is a $4 parking lot with shelters and restrooms. Apparently part of the fee goes... More

If you visit Puerto Rico try to get to this beach. It's clear peaceful waves are worth it. Try to visit during the week and enjoy the peacefulness. It seems to be busy during weekends and holidays. The water is clear, nice sand and beautiful scenery.

great place for lunch as there is a great variety of food kiosks. You can sit outside with a wonderful view of beach and water. The water is smooth and great for swimming. However, the sand is compacted and hard, not good for kids building or playing. The water however is warm and calm, great for kids swimming, wading.

We stopped by Luquillo Beach on the way to the Bio Bay. I was surprised it cost $5 to park, but it was worth it. It was not crowded and the water was crystal clear. I wish we had allotted a half day to spend there.

Don't get me wrong, Luquillo was just fine for a relaxing day in the sun. But we found much better beaches during our stay in PR. For very soft sand between Luquillo and San Juan with semi-calm water I would recommend Isla Verde beach. For a nice beach, but with bigger waves for boogie boarding, definitely Pine Grove beach (Isla... More

The kiosks in Luquillo is truly a funky place with something for everyone. It is a series of shacks (that used to be mud huts until a hurricane washed them away). You will see a mixture of tourists and locals alike, with mostly locals after midnight. There is a variety of restaurants, bars, and souvenir shops (the latter being open... More

It was too bad that both El Yunque and El Balneario Monserrate, the paid park portion of Luquillo Beach were closed during your visit. As one of the reviewers mentioned, there are many portions of Luquillo Beach, some of which are regularly cleaned, as being part of the National Park system here. Having been here now close to a year... More
