Best beach for swimming and why?

Looking to go in May with my best friend and want a relaxing, on the beach vacation.

I've never been to PR and just putting a shout out to those that have!

I've looked over the past week and cannot decide, that's why i put the question out.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I'm just looking for other traveler's experiences.

My needs are quiet, beautiful and calm beach.

A place i can chill with wine and a good book or 5

Seven Seas Beach in Fajardo. It's a Blue Flag Beach. Best to go during the week.

Balneario la Monserrate in Luquillo (blue flag beach) is my absolute favorite.

I would suggest Boqueron beach in Cabo Rojo but beings that it's your first time in PR, I wouldn't suggest staying too far from San Juan.

The Luquillo beach is your best bet.

Have fun!

I second Paris' recommendation for Cabo Rojo. If you are just looking to plop yourself and chill this is the perfect place.
