This beach is very large and beautiful. Don't just settle on the first spots you see when you park. Walk a bit and find your little slice of beauty. Family friendly although it was also great for couples. We were there on our anniversary trip and enjoyed it very much. There are stands and kiosks for food and drink and... More

This is a beautiful beach. The water is calm and transparent. Try to go during the week, since it is a public beach, it is too full on weekends. You pay $4 for the parking. There are places to buy piña coladas or beer and some tipical snacks. Mondays are closed. On your way out, make sure to stop at... More

Love the open beach! Palm trees everywhere! Near El Yunque so you can do both things in one day! Just drive out and in a few miles you are in Luquillo Beach!

We got lucky to find the beach in Loquillo that is off the beaten path for our beach day. We came upon it accidentally and were pleased to find it had only a few locals on it. We parked for free on the street and quickly located Jimmy's rental for our chairs and boogie boards. It was $5 for a... More

Luquillo is a fun beach to visit with the row of food kiosks to visit. There's 5$ paid parking to the right, but if you go to th left parking is free. There are waves for the kids, typically not too strong..fun for bodyboarding. When the tide is in don't try to cross the inlet, as you'll sink into silt... More

Luquillo beach was a good experience. Water was fantastic and clean, sand too. Very family friendly. Plenty of cookouts happening right in the beach. Loved it.

I absolutely love Luquillo Beach. I make a point to visit it every time I go to Puerto Rico. To me it is the definition of a Puerto Rican beach. It is kind of in an alcove so you can see mountains, long coast lines and gorgeous blue water. It has restrooms($1 for the day) that hv showers and changing... More

The water was so warm and the drinks were amazing. I was so surprised that you pay for one drink in the Pineapple with alcohol and you can get a refill for $6.00 with alcohol. This was amazing beach.
