Great beach to relax

Nice sandy beach for the whole family, near to the city with easy acess.The waves are smooth and the shore is really shallow.

A local told us to go tot this beach after we went to El Yunque. There are a bunch of kiosks and restaurants/shops along this beach which have a variety of stuff but the beach itself was disappointing. The view on the beach is very pretty looking across the water but the beach is very dirty and filthy. Trash everywhere.... More

We came here after another tour we had done in the early afternoon so it was almost 4pm when we arrived. It was our first day in Puerto Rico and being from Minnesota, I kept forgetting that even though it is 85 degrees, it is still winter and the sun still goes down around 6:30pm, so we did not have...

We stopped by the stretch of this beach near the kiosks. It was filthy and stank of trash. Perhaps other stretches of the same beach are nicer. At least in the part we visited, this was the filthiest and most unappealing beach we saw in P.R. It was well attended and seemingly well liked by locals.

Sadly, we did not have enough time to spend walking the beach, picnicking or swimming, but as we drove past we were amazed at the beauty of this beautiful beach. I know that I will return home and regret not basking in the sunshine here. So, YOU do it!!

I never get tired of coming to this beautiful tropical beach at the foot of El Yunque rain forest. It's very relaxing to swim in because the water is calm and soothing. There is a great restaurant that serves crab & meat alcapurrias and piña coladas. Don't miss it!

I was looking for somewhere to watch surfers and this was a great spot. It seemed very quiet and not many people out on the beach that day, it was a Friday around noon. There were a couple of surf lesson kiosks set up and kids and adults out getting schooled on how to ride the waves. This is a... More

50 years ago, on my first trip to Puerto Rico, this was a must see activity. The rose of Coco palms were absolutely amazing. In the meantime the palms have become senescent, and other trees have joined the scenery, and many have been taken down. So this is a very nice beach but not the unique site that it once... More

Family friendly beach with beautiful views. You can rent chairs also. The water was nice but a little bit cold as I went in February.

This is a very nice beach for walking or swimming. It is part of a string of beaches that follow the coast by the town of Luquillo. We spent hours and hour walking and did not ever get to a point where we had to stop. Not crowded at all. Luquillo Beach itself is well tended with bathroom facilities.
