“Great lazy day at the beach”
Review of Monserrate Beach

Monserrate Beach

Luquillo beach is a beautiful beach, clean easy highway access and lots of palm trees and
sunshine! For $10.00 you can rent a gazebo with a concrete table and bench and lots of counter space. You can bring your own grill if you want but you better make sure you follow their guidelines regarding the coal disposal because the management are very vigilant towards it. The beach have specific areas for garbage disposal and they recycle. No pets are allowed though. But this keeps the beach clean for us to enjoy. The bathrooms are clean and there are a few kiosks on the area to enjoy local treats at reasonable prices. We had a great time. Will visit soon.

We visited the Monserrate on a weekday aftenoon: what a treat! The beach was nearly empty, perhaps 15 people in it's enormous expanse. Beautiful water and beach that eases back under widely-spaced coconut palms to give shade from the sun. Quiet, clean, and the water temp just cooler than the air, making for a wonderful swimming experience. We're coming back and plan to set aside more time for Monserrate.

Like all beaches, it has many moods. This beach is particularly calm and the view back to the mountains is great. prefer to go out by the point, less crowded.

This beach is very pretty with clear, nearly still waters. I could look down in waist high water and see my pink toenail polish! We rented chairs and found a nice spot in the shade. We were starving since we had just come from the nearby rainforest and went to find food in the many food kiosks further down the beach. There were so many kiosks, we stopped after viewing 5-6 of them, but there are local fried favorites, paellas, stews, burger shacks and bars. I can bet this string of kiosks comes alive in the evening or weekend as the locals were there enjoying it, too. The parking is about $4 per car, or you can park free on the beach directly behind the kiosks. We packed a cooler full of water, beer, rum punch and other snacks and had a blast!
