Luquillo Offers Tranquil Beaches and Fine Accommodations
Luquillo Beach is one of Puerto Rico's most famous and most visited tourist attractions. The view from the beach is spectacular. It features a long gold crescent of sand lined by innumerable coconut palms with the hazy mountains of the rainforest soaring in the distance.
Luquillo Beach is so beautiful that it has become a national and international place of favor – with good reason. Luquillo’s offshore reefs keep the waters calm and tranquil so that families can enjoy the water knowing that the lifeguards are on duty and that rough waters are far away.
Luquillo Beach also has plenty parking, changing and restrooms and has an abundance of souvenir and food stalls. Each stall seems to like its own unique style of tropical music which plays all day long. There are also many colorful kiosk-type shops, which sell everything from bathing costumes to ice-cream and ice-cold beer. Some of them have also transformed into small seaside restaurants where the menu may feature anything from local traditional seafood fritters to gourmet delights. The variety ensures that the tastes of even the most demanding connoisseurs are satisfied.
Together with all the action and entertainment offered, Luquillo has made time once a week for the “Sea Without Barriers” program to help visitors in wheelchairs to enjoy the cool waters with their friends and family.
Luquillo Beach has been visited by residents from San Juan for generations and people from all over the world come here to enjoy the tropical feeling that it offers. A vacation in Puerto Rico would not be complete without at least setting foot on the sands of Luquillo Beach.
