Las Pocitas Beach, Mancora

4.1
#1 of 23 in Beaches in Peru
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. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Mancora trip simple and quick.

  • We stayed in a House called "House of psychologists", which is a little more South than this beach. The whole sector is wonderful to rest, since it offers a calm sea with sectors of rocks full of marine life, so children can play and investigate without danger, even we could snorkel with them among the rocks. Close to the beach (10 minutes walk along the sand to the South), there is a beach that is incredible for those who enjoy the sea and its waves. For those who like 15 minutes jogging along the beach towards "Los Organos Beach" trot, a little further to the South, there is a beach of about 2.5 kilometers long special to do this, since it is flat and with a little more hard sand. Leave early for the heat. I recommend staying in the sector of houses that are past (to the South) sector of "Beach the pocitas" (10 minutes on a motorcycle taxi to the South). The place does not offer many extra activities, being the best diving with turtles that is offered in the Nuro (at 30 minutes by car from Mancora). But the concept that offer these home accommodation is ideal for a good night's sleep. The rental of these homes should be with service included, what transforms it into something similar to a "all inclusive", but family. Climate the best. Cloudless day for a beach good morning and cloudy in the afternoon to read a good book or play something with the family, or stand in the pool. And always with the same temperature (between 28-30 degrees). The sea, spectacular, temperature and currents, at least for us that we come from Chile. Eye that if changes of currents that can bring dangers as the Portuguese frigates or a more tousled sea. The town of Mancora, nothing special, but you have to know him. Many crafts for those who are interested. To arrive. You have to travel to Lima and then to Talara (2:30 by plane from Lima). Then you have to lease something to get to Mancora (2:00 more in auto). I recommend take it prepared before.
