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'll find a large number of beaches to consider, although all of them are found just outside of Loiza. You can click on each beach name for more detail concerning that particular location.
Torrecilla Pinones Beach: Brush and lush trees back the beach, protecting it from the coastal highway, while dark tan sand runs to the shore. The waters are deep blue and can be rough at times.
A second alternative to consider is Fortuna Playa. To gain access to Fortuna Playa, take Interstate PR3 to Road 193.
Luquillo Public Beach: Luquillo Public Beach can be accessed off Highway 3 from Calle A. An asphalt parking lot is available for visitors.
