My friends and I wanted to get out of the San Juan area to explore more beaches in the area and ended up here. We weren't expecting much but were all very happily surprised!! It's close to the rain forest so you can drive through and then venture to the beach. They have a concession stand with alcohol and food... More

A great place to take the little kids, as they will not be overwhelmed by the waves. Also great for old folks too. Small restaurant serving lunch food and many kinds of drinks. Beach was very clean, with a great view of El Yunque. We went several times during our visit when we did not want to play in sometimes... More

It's gorgeous with plenty of sun and calm waters. This is one of Puerto Rico's premier beaches. There is a food cabana for snacks, sodas or drinks. For $1, there are all-day bathroom privileges and a cute tee shirt/gift shop. Fortuna beach is a 3/4-mile walk where beautiful little seashells await. This beach is a treasure!

The thing that outstands in this beach is its proximity to the "kioskos de Luquillo" (an entire strip with approximately 60 local establishments). The perfect place to spend the entire day. Camp grounds are available too.

This beach is definitely worth the $5 per car. There is plenty of sand to spread out and it doesn't feel crowded. There are little to no waves, so it would be great for kids. There's also a good mix of sun and shade! My travel companion and I took a nice walk along the beach to the east and... More

Very well tended beach, great facilities, fantastic food service, very clean, great water quality. Protected by the reef and grassy shallows, so no waves to speak of (unlike other beaches in the area). Also, there's a _very_ decent snorkeling on the far left side of the beach (facing the water).

Very nice beach, clean, not crowded at all, chairs and umbrellas for rent. The sand is velvety smooth, the water is calm, there are kayaks to rent and a man pushing an ice cream cart with large cups of pineapple, coconut, and passion fruit ice cream, which is more like a sherbet, $4. Delicious! It's a nice long beach that... More

My wife and I found this beach and loved it because, 1) it has restrooms, changing rooms, showers, and lockers, and 2) hardly anyone visits it during the "winter". There are public (free) restrooms, but they were out of service when we went. The JUMY bath house charges one dollar to use their facilities (bathrooms, changing rooms, showers) which are... More
