La Poza Beach, Arecibo

3.7
#1 of 7 in Outdoors in Arecibo
Swim in the sheltered rocky cove of La Poza Beach as waves break dramatically on the points and cliffs. Observe surfers catching waves, and the local fishers catching their quarry with spears. Walk on the soft sands of the spacious beach or dip into the warm water, protected from the open ocean. Bring your camera to this scenic location, with its clifftop lighthouse and foamy explosions of seawater. Our Arecibo vacation maker website makes visiting La Poza Beach and other Arecibo attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
