Nearby, famous food kiosks feature authentic local snacks, but the main attraction is the clean, wide, sandy beach stretching for over a mile.

It has been years since we were lucky enough to vacation near this beach. It was one of the highlights of our trip! We are going to visit the island soon and I cannot wait to go to Luquillo Beach!…
