Note:  Due to damages to the facilities by Hurricane Maria, Balneario de Monserrate (Luquillo Beach) is closed.  We have no further information on re-opening dates.

Luquillo’s primary attraction and one of the best “balnearios” (public beaches) of Puerto Rico, situated on

Porta Antillas (the east coast region). Balneario Monserrate has been for years a rival to Balneario of Boqueron in Cabo Rojo new-puerto-rico-window  (southwest coast);which is best, you’ll have to visit both and  decide for yourself.  Luquillo beach is loved by families for it’s facilities but be prepared to face crowds in the summers, weekends and holidays.


Hundreds of palm trees, mountains of El Yunque as a background and a crescent shape beach with great swimming waters.
