We thought that Hurricane Maria might have decimated Luquillo, but we were pleasantly surprised to find that the beach was as beautiful as ever.

Just curious - Has the public parking lot re-opened? We were there in early February and beach area was beautiful but the entrance was still closed and none of the facilities were open. Thanks for any update.

I love this beach! It has perfect waves, sandy bottom, beautiful aqua blue waters, shade on the beach and coconut trees along the shore. We were surprised little had been done to fix the parking lot since the hurricane. This is usually a very crowded...More

The most beautiful beach I’ve seen so far. Sadly, not a lot of people likes to camp here. We were the only ones with a tent. The place is safe but it needs more illumination.

Yes but they are usually trying to clean up from the weekend. We got there around 9:30 on a Monday and it was still pretty dirty from the weekend.

Yes to both;however, this is the calmest beach I have ever seen so boogie boards may not get used much. Luquillo beach would be better for boogie boards.
