Playa Azul

Beach in Luquillo & Around

To escape the crowds of famous Playa Luquillo, head for Playa Azul, east around the headland and in the town itself, directly in front of the condominium development of the same name. While the beach is more exposed to the trade winds and dangerous riptides, Playa Azul is just as broad, powdery and gently sloping as Luquillo.

You can join surfers in these waters at La Pared (the Wall) to catch a surf break. Or scramble over the stone jetty at the eastern end of the beach and follow a strand of beaches and bays that stretch over 5 miles to Playa Seven Seas in Las Croabas.
