Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Go off the beaten path with a visit to Playa Mar Chiquita, a distinct beach in Puerto Rico because there is no main thoroughfare that runs alongside the beach, it doesn’t have a long strand, and the water is not ideal for swimming. However, sightseers come to get close to the shore to see the two huge coral formations that protect a small cove and the massive tidal pools that capture water rushing from the Atlantic Ocean, creating mist. These tidal pools feature a set of mini waterfalls flowing into them.

  • Unique beach! Beautiful for pictures. There are little pools of water made from the rocks where you can relax. If you want to go for a good exercise swim you can go in the beach area, the waves can be strong.
  • Very pretty. The waters are a bit rough, but sitting on the rock and letting the water hit you is very nice for a family with small kids. Also, buying a sangria and sitting under a tree is nice
