Places To Visit In Puerto Rico

Monserrate Beach

Monserrate Beach
March 2nd, 2015

Although the signs say “Balneario La Monserrate,” everybody refers to it as Monserrate Beach. It has been designated as a Blue Flag Beach, meaning the place has met standards in terms of water quality and condition of facilities. One of the best public beaches and a major tourist destination of the municipality of Luquillo, Monserrate Beach is gated for security of the visitors as well as their belongings.

Safe Even for Young Children

Declared as Puerto Rico’s most popular beach in 2006, El Balneario de Luquillo a.k.a. Monserrate Beach has picnic areas, food stands, cocktail kiosks, lifeguard stations, rentals for jet-skis, umbrellas, kayaks, and lounge chairs. The most distinctive facility of the beach is known as the “Sea Without Barriers” or Mar Sin Barreras, a ramp with a low slope that enables wheelchair users to immerse themselves in the water.

The water in Monserrate Beach is typically calm due to its natural wave break, making it ideal even for young children. Additionally, a lifeguard is always on duty in this crescent-shaped and coconut tree-lined beach. Because of its designation as a Blue Flag Beach, it has clean shower facilities, modern bathrooms, and rentals of wheelchairs so even the physically disabled can enjoy the sea and the sand.

Food Served Restaurant-Style

Although there are several food stands and kiosks that sell local dishes, you have the option of trying three restaurants within the Monserrate Beach vicinity. One of them, Lemon Grass, was named by Travel and Leisure, Gourmet, and Food & Wine magazines as one of the world’s best restaurants. Lemon Grass serves Pan-Asian and Latino cuisine and has been known to be a preferred destination of celebrities.

When “lemon” is present, “tangerine” will not be far behind, and it isn’t, because Tangerine Restaurant is in Puerto Rico, the definition of island dining chic. Recognized as one of San Juan’s top-rated restaurants, Tangerine was listed among “Conde Nast Travelers Hot Tables” when it opened. The restaurant has a bar, elevators, and a lobby with mini waterfalls.

Flyboarding, Anyone?

The Flyboard Puerto Rico East beckons to locals and visitors alike for adventure, fun, and excitement as a water jetpack-like gadget is attached to a PWC (personal water craft) that supplies propulsion for driving the Flyboard through the water and air to constitute the newest water sport called “flyboarding.” It’s like flying with boots that have jet nozzles under them so the rider can get up in the air as high as 15 meters.

And then there’s the unique Luquillo Beach Boys Surf School where you can take surfing lessons safely and easily from experienced local surfers. They even teach kids.

If you want a relaxing, cool, and leisurely ride, take a ride on a catamaran, the ancient boat of Puerto Rico’s indigenous tribes, and explore the surrounding coastal areas. And if you want to snorkel, scuba dive, and go fishing, there are charters for these which you can also rent.
