Playa Poza del Obispo, Arecibo

3.7
#1 of 7 in Outdoors in Arecibo
Swim in the sheltered rocky cove of Playa Poza del Obispo 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.
