I never get tired of coming to this beautiful tropical beach at the foot of El Yunque rain forest. It's very relaxing to swim in because the water is calm and soothing. There is a great restaurant that serves crab & meat alcapurrias and piña coladas. Don't miss it!

I was looking for somewhere to watch surfers and this was a great spot. It seemed very quiet and not many people out on the beach that day, it was a Friday around noon. There were a couple of surf lesson kiosks set up and kids and adults out getting schooled on how to ride the waves. This is a... More

50 years ago, on my first trip to Puerto Rico, this was a must see activity. The rose of Coco palms were absolutely amazing. In the meantime the palms have become senescent, and other trees have joined the scenery, and many have been taken down. So this is a very nice beach but not the unique site that it once... More

Family friendly beach with beautiful views. You can rent chairs also. The water was nice but a little bit cold as I went in February.

This is a very nice beach for walking or swimming. It is part of a string of beaches that follow the coast by the town of Luquillo. We spent hours and hour walking and did not ever get to a point where we had to stop. Not crowded at all. Luquillo Beach itself is well tended with bathroom facilities.

This is one of the most spectacular beaches you will come across in PR. The beaches are white the water is emerald. You can walk for miles and just get lost in the beauty of the sand, sun and water. It is a great way to spend a day.🇵🇷

My family and I heard mixed reviews of Puerto Rico, and I have to say none of them compare to the real thing. Don't judge a book by its cover. The culture is amazing, the people are fun, and the mojitos are perfect. Take a leap of faith and just go!!

The beach itself is fairly nice and looks to be frequented by locals. On a good swell its also got some descent surfable waves. The reason for the stop on this trip was the variety of food kiosks and restaurants. Don't expect anything fancy as most are a bit gritty but everyone is super friendly and the food is fantastic!

A must see beach. Words do not make justice! Also pass by the "kiosks" for some yummy Puerto Rican food!
