Playa Luquillo was everything I was looking for in a Caribbean beach! Warm, clear and calm water, framed by beautiful palm trees. The bathrooms could use some help... but beyond that, I really enjoyed my time at Luquillo. The $5 parking fee was well worth it.

This was by far the nicest beach in Loquillo, you do have to pay for paking but it's worth it. You can barbaque and bring your cooler. There are 2 small kiosks that serve really, really strong pina colada's served in a pineapple. Yummy!

Honestly - we've been to many beaches in different countries and Luquillo is by far our favorite!!! Lots of shade from gorgeous palm trees, calm water (excellent for kids!), very good food and yummy pina colada: what's more to expect?! Oh yes, and my eldest son loves soccer, so he was happy to play soccer on the beach: sand is... More

$5.50 entry to park. Plenty of parking. There are lounge chairs and beach umbrellas for rent. Piña coladas served right on the pineapple. All sorts of food is available at their food joint. Well kept. Lifeguards on duty.

One of the many beautiful beaches you can enjoy in PR all year long. Walking distance to a variety of food vendors - a MUST when visiting PR

This was in my opinion one of the prettiest beaches on the island. There was great natural shade and there was also chairs and umbrellas for rent. The water was shallow, but perfectly blue and refreshing. A short walk from 60 kiosks of food, drink and shopping. Parking was $5 at the beach!

Beautiful beach with calm waters. Great place to relax with family or friends. You can rent a chair for $6 per day. Kiosks with lots of different restaurants are nearby. Easy to buy food and bring it back to the beach. Lots of locals and tourists. Seems very safe and fun.

We decided to have our driver drop us off here for a few hours after the rain forest tour before heading back to our resort. The beach was not crowded at all but that have been because it was later in the afternoon. Very pretty beach but not the most picturesque or anything. The sand was more brown than white... More

We discovered this beautiful gem and we absolutely loved it !!! Literally spent all day here until the sunset and it was amazing. The water is so calm. The beach is flat and there's tons of shade under the beautiful palm trees, to escape from the blazing sun. There's bathrooms ($1 per person for all day use) and there is... More
