Just off Route 3, gentle Luquillo Beach is a magnet for families. Signs refer this beach as Balneario La Monserrate, but everyone simply calls it Luquillo Beach. It's one of Puerto Rico's distinguished Blue Flag beaches. Lined with colorful lifeguard stations and shaded by soaring palm trees, it's well equipped with food stands, picnic areas, and even cocktail kiosks. Lounge chairs and umbrellas are available to rent, as are kayaks and jet-skis. Its most distinctive facility
is the Mar Sin Barreras (Sea Without Barriers), a low-sloped ramp leading into the water that allows wheelchair users to take a dip. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards, parking (fee); showers; toilets. Best for: partiers; swimming; walking.
