Las Pocitas Beach, Mancora

(4/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Relax at Las Pocitas Beach, a secluded white sand beach featuring naturally formed pools between its boulders. Stroll on the warm sand and enjoy the quiet atmosphere, collect seashells, and try to spot the many birds, turtles, sea lions, and migrating whales that frequent the area. Sunbathe or relax and watch the fish in the pools; if you do go swimming, exercise caution negotiating the rocky floor. Calmer and less crowded than other Mancora beaches, this makes a nice spot for a picnic, beach sports, snapping photos, or just unwinding.

  • Beautiful , warm calm seas with rock pools and friendly residents Much more up market than mancora Lovely restaurants , clear sands No hawkers not as many dogs and animals etc  more »
  • I was surprised when at the hotel in which we stayed was recommended to walk along this beach as curious to see. No term to understand the good note of this beach when it is impossible to bathe in the same except when the "pools" are formed in some spots, perhaps for the children may be interesting for an adult is a not suitable for bathing beach

  • Beach calm, which is characterized by the pocitas which are made in the rocks in the morning then lost, since the tide. It caught my attention a lot of small and harmless crabs of sand, a beautiful and striking spectacle.
