4.3/5 based on 160 reviews on the web
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. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Manati holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Playa Mar Chiquita and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • I see in the comments, this corner is transformed depending on the season. We have come in October. The sea was very, very moved and the beach was quite a spectacle. The waves jumped above the rocks making some incredible round waves and some spectacular in one side falls. It was impossible to bathe while we found some brave. The current was super strong and still being in the Bank, the water you dragged. However, the setting is spectacular. The force of the Sea made it more special. There was nothing more than a booth selling drinks. A very good place.

  • Nice beach if you can find the right trail to get to it. Good view but almost a one lane road at some points. Not very well marked. 
  • The beach is very nice, you can find a small store nearby that sells cocktails and snacks, bad thing there are no bathrooms close to even wash their hands. The beach is a little Rocky so you must be careful not to fall
