“Beach”

The luquillo beach is very nice. It's a nice family beach. They sell all kind of goodies and food. It is close to many attractions near San Juan.

“Great Beach to Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

This beach is referred to by several different names but no matter what you call it.....it is a great place to go!!
This is a government beach that is very well maintained. There is a nominal parking/entrance fee and it is totally worth it. A wide beach peppered with Palm trees and a beautiful beach scape as far as the eye can see! If you like walking on the beach, lounging in your chair, playing in the water or any combination, this is a great place to do it. There are clean restrooms, food stands and even a nice souvenir shop! Available on the beach there is an umbrella and lounge chair rental which is worth getting. Bring your cooler, beach toys, sunscreen and camera.....I guarantee you will have a great day! After an afternoon at Balneario we went and parked over by the food kiosks (right around the corner) for dinner. It was yet another great day spent in Puerto Rico!!

“Beautiful Beach, A Must See!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Ok, I have seen this beach referred to by many names. I believe the official name to be Balneario Monserrate as that is the name on the sign at the beach and on the maps. It is also referred to as Balneario Luquillo and Luquillo Beach by some. Regardless of its name, it is a beautiful well maintained stretch of beach and a must see if you are in the area!

The parking was less than $5 and $1/person a day will get you access to clean restrooms that have lockers, showers, and separate dressing rooms. Quite the impressive facilities and well worth a buck!

The beach itself is big with many palm trees for shade and clear blue/turquoise waters and a view of the rainforest! Walk in one direction and you will leave the Balneario and see the back of the Kiosks, head the other way and you end up in a nature area with remnants of old docks. This is a great beach area for long walks, lounging in paradise or enjoying the calm waters.
