Balneario Monserrate, often referred to simply as Luquillo Beach, is a long cresent of fine sand, with plenty of mature palm trees for shade, and El Yunque National Forest in the background. Due to a fringing reef, there are no waves to speak of, so it's a perfect beach for young kids. The beach has some food kiosks, restrooms, changing rooms, showers, and lifeguards. There is a small fee to park in the gated parking area.

We paid $5.50 to park and obtain entrance to this beach, and it was worth it to take in how locals enjoy themselves on the weekends. Families were playing baseball, frisbee, and cards as others were enjoying picnics and grilled foods. We enjoyed strolling along the path from one end of the beach to the other after our visit to...

One of the best beaches in Puerto Rico. Plenty of shaded areas were to set chairs or hammock. There are showers and places were to buy snacks. The sea is surprisingly calm.

Nice for swimming. Swim zone roped off. Was very calm the day we went. No lifeguards seen, though it was a weekday in off season. The surrounding area is weird, not super clean and not kept up. Nearby places to eat if you dare. Not clear enough to snorkel.

A few locals told us about Luquillo beach and I am so glad we stop by. there was a nice restaurant that you could enjoy meals and drinks from as well as activities to do in the water. It was family oriented and everyone was very friendly. My husband... More

We stopped by Luquillo Beach on our way back from the Rainforest. Nice, palm tree lined beach with good swimming.

A quiet beach with a nice view but it had way too many birds that day. I wouldn't go back, we didn't get in the water because it looked kind of dirty and there were too many people around, no where to sit.

Depending on what area you visit the beach can offer a different perspective. There are food kiosks along the beach that make a nice meal.

$5.50 to get into this beach. It's very beautiful. Mountains in one side, ocean in the other. Private beach so much cleaner than local beaches. They do have beach chairs for rent. I always just bring a towel. Shelters and picnic tables. Bathrooms and showers but they cost a dollar to use them.
