With El Yunque National Forest blooming in the background, it’s easy to see why this beautiful beach is such a draw. A fringe reef protects Luquillo Beach from raging surf, so families find it a great place to bring young kids who are often found frolicking in the calm water. Local food kiosks that dot the area are frequented for beachside eating, though locals often set up their own grills and have hearty barbecues. Beach umbrellas and lounge chairs are available for rent, as are kayaks for personal use or kayaking tours. Guided tours that include Luquillo Beach depart from Old San Juan and may combine the beach stop with visits to El Yunque, the Camuy Caves, and the bioluminescent bay.
