Luquillo Beach or Balneario La Monserrate is one of the finest beaches in Puerto Rico. Here you will find a wide band of soft palm-shaded white sand meeting clear calm water. The beach is run by the national parks department and has ground keepers, lifeguards, and restrooms. Visitors have their choice of water sports including swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and wind surfing. It is located in the little town of Luquillo near the entrance of El Yunque National Forest.
Kiosks along the road between the beach and Rt 3 sell food and rent chairs, umbrellas, and kayaks.
