Las Pocitas Beach, Mancora

(550+ reviews on the web)
Beach Nature / Park
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. See Las Pocitas Beach and all Mancora has to offer by arranging your trip with our Mancora travel itinerary maker.
