Quiet, and a great view of the Atlantic ocean. There are two sides to it, the public and private side.

This is a beautiful, small beach. If you're just looking for a beach, this is good place to go. If you want an amazing beach in your trip to PR, go to Aquadilla.

Stopped here for a swim after visiting the rainforest. Water was warm, view was great, but to gain access to the beach we had to walk through all kinds of litter.... cans, plastic bottles, lots of cigarette butts. There were large groups of people visiting the beach with loud music playing out of the back of a vehicle. So it... More

This must be the best beach on the island. Beautiful, white sand. Easy to swim. There are bathrooms and lockers available for only 1$ per person, which covers the whole day.

We went here after spending the day in El Yunque.. This beach has a lot of parking (be prepared to pay for parking). You can also rent umbrellas and beach chairs. The beach is beautiful! White sand beaches and turquoise water. The surf was low, so great for kids. The only draw back was the insect bites. As we were... More

This beach is amazing. Its can be free or inexpensive Free: if you pass on the side with the shops (luquillo shops) it appeared thats what the locals did Inexpensive: if you pay the parking (i think it was like $4) and you can pay $1 to go and change, shower and use the bathroom and the whole changing suite...

Loud on the weekend but an absolutely beautiful beach! Local population is hard working and friendly but may seem standoffish to some. My wife and I walked the beach this morning, 2.5 miles out and back and saw 3, yes 3, people the entire walk. This is an unknown paradise so please don't come here :)

Nice beach. Pretty water is clear. Sand is nice, not too many bugs. Bring towels or chairs as I don't recall seeing any to rent. It's a public beach. There's a pretty cool coconut cutter there. He climbs the trees with sketchy shoes and apparel with no safety gear. Scary cool! Beware: do not pick up coconuts. Our guide said... More

Unlike the rough surf in Condado, this beach is calm with the most beautiful crystal clear blue water. Private bathroom with dressing rooms and showers costs $1.00 for the day. Wish we would have discovered this beach earlier in our trip. Great place to pack up a cooler and spend the day.
