Create an itinerary including Playa Mar Chiquita
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.

  • One of the most beautiful beach I’ve been to. The water is amazing. Great for kids, snorkeling in Mar Chiquita is amazing, tons of beautiful fish and corals. I recommend bringing water shoes since it’s an active reef there sharp edges and tons of sea urchins. If you’re lucky you’ll see small octopus 🐙 swim and hiding by the bottom rocks.
  • Absolutely gorgeous! The parking is fairly easy. The sand is super soft and the water is amazing! Highly recommend climbing the rocks because the view is worth it!
