The beaches of Loiza are lined with vendors selling the wares, but the one you'll want to hunt down is the cart selling fresh coconut milk. It is so fresh, in fact, that they lop off the top of the coconut, stick a straw in it, and send you on your way. Whether or not you add a little rum is up to you. From there you can take your beverage, set up shop on the soft, dark sands along the shore, and take in the view of the beautiful turquoise waters that are set before you.
You will find an abundance of beaches to consider visiting, although all of them are located nearby. Simply click on specific beach names for a detailed article concerning that section of the coast.
Torrecilla Pinones Beach: Torrecilla Pinones is located off PR 187.
Another location worth considering is Fortuna Playa. Fortuna Playa is what many would call a "local beach." The area is frequented by locals, and not very well kept, yet still remains a beauty in the grand scheme of things.
Luquillo Public Beach: Luquillo Public Beach can be accessed off Highway 3 from Calle A. An asphalt parking lot is available for visitors.
