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

Luquillo Beach is a lovely stretch of sandy beach with a gentle shore break that is popular with local families. there's a row of restaurants along the beach offering many cuisines and specialties. sadly, the beach is used and abused--there's trash everywhere, and in such a depressing quantity.

First, you must pay a fee per car - like $4. But it is well worth it. Because it is a paid beach, there are amenities there such as bathrooms, lockers and food shacks. The beach itself is like no place I've ever been. There are no waves and the water is cool and clear. Great beach for young children... More

We love this beach and have been coming here for years. It's a lovely mix of tourists and locals. We never come on the weekends because it gets too full. We were here in April but sadly on this trip (August) we noticed the beach was littered. That said we will continue to remain loyal. We've been to beaches all... More

The beach is beautiful, the water is beautiful. You are greeted by sweet happy dogs when entering... but authorities at the beach poison them and watch them die in plain sight of you and your children. It's a shame because up until that point I loved this beach, but I will never go back after that horrible experience.

Beautiful Carribean beach with wide sand part, clear blue waters and palm trees. Never crowded, plenty of space and privacy. What gives it a special detail are nice, warm and always smiling Puertorican people. A must if you are at eastern part of this amazing island.

The private beach was easy to access. The water is calm here, great for small kids. Chairs and umbrellas were available to rent, along with a locker, changing room and bathroom area. We enjoyed the Icee guys selling on the beach.

This is a great beach to bring the kids too- not very populated and the waves are just big enough where they are good for boogie boarding! We have kids ranging 5-12 and they all loved it!
