  • It still looks exactly like the pictures above, so I didn't add anything new. Beautiful clear waters, dramatic rocks, playful waves, and sandy bottom with a wide wide beach. Apparently no harm...  more »
  • Been to this beach since I was a kid. Never overcrowded and nice and peaceful. Great location for pictures. Waves crashing on the wavebreaker on the other side of the beach makes for amazing pics...  more »

  • La Pocita is a very beautiful beach. The shore is wide, and plenty of room to walk and play beach sports. Sometimes the tide is so steady and calm... other times it can be very strong. Just enjoy it by using common sense. You might want to bring something to protect yourself from the sun (umbrella, sunblock) and food, since are not places to eat that are walking distance. It's a nice place to have a great time while being surrounded by natural beauty and diverse people.
  • It has taken a beating since Maria. The one and last covered seating area is gone and the parking is now the street or grass since the sand reaches the street. It seemed at the time that I went, the tide was high or that both bodies of water are uniting. Gotta be very careful about getting in the open ocean, strong currents.
  • Awesome beach clean not deep kids loved it
  • Best place ever! 35 years going to that place!
  • It was really nice, the water is nice temperature. The water is also clean and you can get to see fishes.
