Playa Mar Chiquita, Manati

4.5
#1 of 7 in Things to do in Manati
Go off the beaten path with a visit to Playa Mar Chiquita, a distinct beach in Puerto Rico because there is no main thoroughfare that runs alongside the beach, it doesn’t have a long strand, and the water is not ideal for swimming. However, sightseers come to get close to the shore to see the two huge coral formations that protect a small cove and the massive tidal pools that capture water rushing from the Atlantic Ocean, creating mist. These tidal pools feature a set of mini waterfalls flowing into them.

  • Mar Chiquita beach (or Little Sea) is just that — a small cove of a beach protected from the rough Atlantic by a rocky wall. This picture-perfect beach, located in the town of Manatí, is a hidden gem 💎 and one of my favorite beaches 🌊 in Puerto Rico 🇵🇷
