This beach contains showers, changing facilities, and picnic areas. The natural beauty of Luquillo Beach draws many photographers to it.

The Best Puerto Rico Beach for Surfing

Playa Higüero – Many surfers visit this beach November through April to take advantage of the excellent winter surf. Since so many surfers visit this beach, its’ nickname is Little Malibu.
