So glad we found this wonderful beach, far from the windy and rough north shore of Puerto Rico. What a difference - nice sand, clear water, soft breeze. You can walk for miles. Plenty of parking, too.

One of the high points of our trip. If you like long sandy beaches and a very nice beach to swim this beach will be a hit. Chairs and umbrellas available for rent. This area also has good and baths. Worth the trip. Great view of the rainforest as well. We actually went 2 days. Enjoyed every minute..

All the reviews i read were very accurate. I didnt pay to park and went on a day when there were very few people there. One side of the beach offers waves for surfing, but on the other side is a lagoon with very calm water. The sand is nice, water very clear and it was a very relaxing time.... More

This was the best...All the little stands where you can grab some rice and beans, an Empanada and a cold beer. Check out all the little stores and then head to the beach behind them. To the left is more secluded beaching. In the middle a boat ramp and to the right beach and activities. You can rent a kayak... More

Fun and beautiful little beach. Parking costs around $5 if I recall correctly. There is a little beach shop there, but the clothes mostly looked untrendy (grandma-ish). We used the restroom facilities and found that there was no toilet paper, no soap or paper towels/dyers. We did see a sign for another bathroom that charged $1 fee to use and... More

Luquillo beach is beautiful but not easy to find. Look for Monseratti Park, and you will find it more easily. This beach is where locals go, so if you are interested in the native culture, go here. No waves and you can see your toes even when you are shoulder deep in water.

Did this beach after exploring El Yunque. $4 parking. Lot was almost full. $10 for 2 lounge chairs under Palm tree (save $10 umbrella fee). Water was nice. Very crowded. Small waves. Good sand but not 'Caribbean island' powder soft. No snorkeling. Fair amenities. Good place to play in the ocean. Not my ideal beach.

This is a very nice typical caribbean beach with ample parking, good facilities, etc. Although it is very popular, during the week it was not very crowded, and so made for a very good beach outing.

The serenity, palm trees, and non touristy atmosphere, makes this a hidden gem! Must hit the kiosks for real authentic PR food, drinks, and souvenirs!
