Beach description

Playa Chica is located in Puerto del Carmen. Its entire coast is covered with dark yellow sand; natural rock breakwaters enclose the bay on both sides. It was volcanic reefs that made this beach very popular among lovers of swimming underwater. The opportunities for diving and snorkeling here are the best on the island, the underwater world in the bay is surprisingly rich and diverse.
