  • Playa Chica is pretty small but I pretty much like it due to multiple water-sports options, clean & easy2access toilets, great sites to snorkel and dive, good restaurants around. For those who want to...  more »
  • Playa Chica is a small sandy and safe bay with toilets and cafe to hand. Parking can be difficult at popular times and it has, on occasion, been necessary to park in the Biosfere underground car park ...  more »

  • Playa Chica is a beautiful little beach, perfect for diving. There are often many diving school mini buses from all over the island lined up along the front. The water is very clear and several varieties of colourful fish are abundant, to be seen from the jetty, or around your feet if you paddle into the sea from the beach! The views and scenery here are stunning!
  • Lovely spot with a great little cafe in the pier. Lots of activities to take part in, scuba, snorkling and paragliding to name but a few. Clean waters for swimming and a lovely sheltered beach if you just want to sit and read a book. A really nice place and not too far away from the old town.
  • Fantastic beach for snorkeling, tons of different fish to be seen. Beach is small but that's another positive for me. There's free to use toilets. There's a little snack bar too.
  • Some kind of boulevard with several nice restaurants. At the begin there is a market with 30 or 40 stands. Most with standard things like t shirts, aloe vera plants and leather bags.
  • Loving this beach. So so relaxing. Dying for a cocktail and the guy selling ice cream got us 2 fabulous cocktails so cheap just ask we did.😂💕
