Such a wide beach with layers of fine white sand is what Luquillo beach is all about. Cap off your hike in El Yunque Rainforest with a dip at the Luquillo Beach and you’d instantly feel refreshed. The beach features tropical scenery of palm trees and pristine blue waters. If not seeping sangria or a bottle of ice cold water while reading a book in a shaded area, you can also go scuba diving and snorkeling while here. The beach can get pretty crowded during the weekend and holidays so plan your trip to Luquillo Beach accordingly.
