Fodor's Review

Signs refer to this gentle beach off Route 3 as Balneario La Monserrate, but everyone simply calls it Luquillo Beach. Lined with colorful lifeguard stations and shaded by soaring palm trees, it's a magnet for families and has picnic areas and 60+ kiosks serving fritters and drinks—a local hangout. 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 into the water that allows wheelchair users to take a dip. Unfortuntaely, the beach has become a crowded, and littered, party beach. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards, parking (fee); showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: partiers; swimming; walking.
