    The beaches

    by dlandt Written Apr 12, 2010

    Luquillo is known for its beaches, having one of the prettiest on the island. These beaches have given rise to the highrise condos that are let to tourists like myself. Actually, they aren't all let to tourists. More than half of the people staying there are from Puerto Rico and half the remainder are married to Puerto Ricans or are their boy/girlfriends cousins etc. so you have a local feel to your accomodations and the same applies to the beach. Both beaches (Playa Azul and Playa Luquillo) are public access beaches cared for and frequented by local people in addition to visitors. The state of the beach is generally good, seldom seemed crowded and behind Playa Luquillo is a line of kiosks that serve food and drink. There isn't much in the way of facilities, but since the condo yard essentially opens onto the beach you don't need them as your unit is only a few meters away.

  • Fantastic beach

    by pappilon Updated Dec 7, 2005

    Today Luquillo remains one of the island’s most popular beaches, and with good reason. Offshore reefs keep the waters calm, so families can relax knowing that lifeguards are on duty and that rough surf and deep waters are far, far away. Ample parking, changing and rest rooms, and souvenir and food stands are nearby. Boat access, rentals, windsurfing and camping areas are available.

    Among the facilities is the “Sea Without Barriers” program, staffed by professionals who help visitors in wheelchairs join their family and friends for a dip in the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

    Another attraction is the array of brightly colored kiosks near the entrance to the public beach. From simple shacks to fancy mini-restaurants, each booth serves everything from ice-cold beer and refreshments and hand made coconut candies to traditional seafood fritters and full scale meals. Each also seems to prefer its own exuberant tropical music! Enjoy the Pina Coladas here !!
