We were actually planning to go to Culebra (which I heard is amazing) but we found out how much hassle it would take to get there, which you can read about on the Culebra reviews. Outside of Culebra this has to be one of the best beaches in Puerto Rico. The only drawbacks I can think of were that the... More

Didn't have a lot of time to visit the beach but from what we saw, impressive! The waves are awesome and the beach views were way cool. Worth the visit.

Absolutely recommend going here. Beach is clean. Water beautiful. Short walk to kiosks for lunch. Can get frozen drinks and beer at reasonable price right there. Rent chairs. Life is good

This ocean was gorgeous the beach was clean; and not crowded at all where we were at. The only thing to keep an eye out for is the rock and coral; it is very sharp if you drift and step on it; so make sure you stay clear. very pretty sites and awesome peace and quite for a beach. You... More

Very calm waters and great facilities....bathroom, showers, changing rooms. It does cost $1 for adults and $.50 per child to use them, but well worth it if you are staying for the day. The views are gorgeous!

We were hoping to make it out to Culebra or Vieques, but could not quite leave early enough with our 8 month old, so we decided to try to find a beach a little more driveable from San Juan that didn't require taking any sort of flight or ferry. Luquillo beach came up in our search criteria for clear blue,... More

Breathtaking views and you can park on the area right near the beach. Its right behind the Kiokos de Luquillo so you won't be hungry! Grab some food and plop on the beach! Its public, you can swim or just chill! Absolutely love this place!!!

We didn't go to the "public" beach where you pay to park. Stayed at Sunrise Inn and enjoyed the beach right there. Gorgeous. Lots of waves for playing / surfing / wakeboarding. Very safe. Friendly locals. Great food and pubs nearby. Win-Win-Win!

Beautiful local beach! Waves were calm, the sand was soft, and the beach was very long with plenty of shade trees. There were food huts there too. We ate at one and had DELICIOUS freshly baked pizza and soda. With all the expensive restaurants, this was a great break! Only $17 for two pizzas and two sodas! And it was... More

Appears to be a NON tourist attraction. Plenty of what appeared to be the local people enjoying a day at their beach. Trash throw all over the place. The Kiosks or "shacks" appeared equivalent to the local back in the US fair food. I wonder if there was running water in these places?
