Playa Mar Chiquita, Manati

(4.2/5 based on 170+ 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.
