Balneario La Monserrate

Balneario La Monserrate Review

Just off Route 3, gentle Balneario La Monserrate is a magnet for families. Also known as Playa Luquillo, 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.
