Beach here taken care of, but definitely needs some extra daily cleaning. People leave a lot of garbage on beach especially tons of glass up toward the strand of businesses. Great option to rent umbrella and chairs for the day. Water is beautiful blue hue and calming.

I like this beach b/c there's kiosks all around it with food and shopping. Great food at that. I definitely recommend stopping by. It's not the nicest beach but cool for walking around. Very much a locals hang out spot.

Great beach for kids, it's shallow a long way out and the waves (at least on the days I've been there) are small. There are lifeguards on duty and there are showers and toilets available to use also. It does get busy but that is probably because it is near to San Juan and is such a nice beach.

Great beach, chairs and umbrella to rent all day for 20 dollars. Water was wonderful, very few waves, and people selling drinks and food on the beach. Also bought some great t-shirts from the little store on the beach.

Yesterday after hiking in the El Yunque National Forest my friends and I decided to relax on the beach in Luquillo. After finding the secret way in to free parking we decided to get some lunch. I saw a nicely painted in light blue place only a few yards from where we parked, it was called La Yola. I was... More

Luquillo Beach is a beautiful public beach. The water is clear and the sand is soft. To enter the beach you pay a small fee of 4.46 to park for the day. The surrounding views of the mountains and ocean is very serene and relaxing. We went during a weekday because the beach tends to get very crowded on weekends.... More

We arrived at this beach during the week of August 16. It was absolutely beautiful. The water is very placid and crystal clear. There is sand, free from rocks and debris. You can rent umbrellas and chairs and they'll place them anywhere on the beach. My suggestion is that you go to the end of the beach that is quiet... More
