[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
About 30 miles to the east of San Juan on Route 3 and adjacent to the town of the same name is beautiful Luquillo Beach. The most famous of Puerto Rican beaches, it sits in a crescent-shaped bay edged by a vast coconut grove, which makes it the best beach in Puerto Rico and one of the finest in the Caribbean. Coral reefs protect the crystal-clear lagoon from the often fierce Atlantic waters that batter this coast.The majestic stand of coconut palms shade more than a mile of white sandy beach..The Yunque is plainly visible towards the south. The Balneario is quite crowded during the weekends. Before entering the beach many stop at any one of the roadside thatched huts that sell delicious Puerto Rican snacks such as bacalaítos or alcapurrias.
