If you'd rather do a chinchorreo next to the beach, head east to the town of Luquillo (just past El Yunque rainforest) for a stop at the famous Luquillo Kiosks. This is a strip of about 60 restaurants and shops ranging from open-air chinchorros to more sit-down places serving traditional Puerto Rican food (especially fresh local seafood), Peruvian, Colombian, or Argentinean cuisine, burgers, pizza, or cocktails. Many of the kiosks have a view of the beach and on weekends there is often live Latin music. Right next door is one of the most beautiful beaches in Puerto Rico, Balneario La Monserrate.
Piñones is another excellent alternative for some beachside fried-food indulgence. Piñones is the coastal part of the town of Loíza, composed of dozens of kiosks selling fritters, skewered meat, and fresh fruit shakes.
El Boricua, one of the most famous kiosks lies on the far side of Piñones. Fritters are thrown into the fryer just as you order them, so they take a little longer to be ready, but the wait is worth it for the amazing flavor and freshness. Also, the portions are enormous. Other popular kiosks include La Comay, Donde Olga, and K'rajo Beach Bar, which was rebuilt on the reality show “Bar Rescue” after Hurricane Maria destroyed it. Aside from food, there is also a boardwalk that meanders through the mangrove forest, perfect for a leisurely walk or a bike ride, and Aviones beach, basically a giant tide pool created by volcanic rock formations.
