Balneario de Luquillo Luquillo, PR
one of the oldest and most visited public beaches on the island


Just a 45 minute ride east from San Juan and a couple of minutes away from the entrance to El Yunque Rainforest lies the Balneario de Luquillo. La Monserrate Beach, as it is also known, is one of the oldest and most visited public beaches on the island. A member of the Blue Flag Program that emphasizes water quality and environmental conservation, the crescent’s tranquil waters are surrounded by spectacular views of the nearby mountains. The abundant shade provided by the grove of majestic coconut palms makes it a popular place to take the whole family. A principal amenity is that it is one of the few beaches with complete access for disabled people including ramps and assistance by the Balneario’s personnel. Stopping by the strip of kiosks on the road leaving the beach is an essential part of the trip during the day. There you can enjoy a great variety of fritters and other staples of traditional cuisine or choose from an assortment of refreshing drinks.
