About
Playa La Posita is probably one of the better-known beaches in Pinones because of its accessibility. It's right on PR-187, and one of its distinctive attributes is that a long breakwater hinders the intense Atlantic waves from crashing into "La Posita", which translates as the pool, or the puddle. Its waters are similar to those of a pool: calm and cool, perfect for bathing without having to struggle with the waves' intensity. Moreover, you can park in front of the beach, and, across the PR-187, you can grab a bite in some of Pinones' best beach shack, like El Guariquiten.

Loiza Beach is not the tourist beach you may be accustomed to. It is a bit off the beaten path and unlike some of the more visited beaches in Puerto Rico this one is a bit more isolated. The water and sand is great, depending on where you settle at. The best part of the location is; when you get hungry all you have to do is walk up to the many eateries along the way and you can’t go wrong. The beach is a bit rustic but definitely worth the while.

Great for kids but be aware that it gets pretty crowded on weekend and there is hardly no shade. Gladly there is some people renting umbrellas and chair and there are plenty of places to grab a bite if you get hungry. Parking is in the street and it can be very windy sometimes. Remember to wear sunblock and don't leave your trash behind.

Las Pocitas de Piñones is very close to San Juan , about 15 minutes,passing Carolina.
This place is ideal to come and relax in the water because is like kids’ Pool! Warm and calm, so you sit and don’t want to leave.
It has plenty of parking space across the street. I really suggest you to go.

The natural, reef enclosed “pool” was great for the kids. We rented an umbrella for $8 for the day.
The bad was that the beach, parking and adjacent areas were trash-strewn and very dirty. Would never return.

I absolutely love this beach. It is kind of like a natural pool because the rocks block the open ocean / waves. The water is very clear and the beach doesn't get too full. They don't have any restaurants walking distance but they do have kiosks with fried foods right in front of it. Very kid friendly, water is shallow.

This beach is very cute, like a beach within a beach. We snorkeled there and saw lots of fish and crabs. The current is kind of strong, but staying put is not difficult. The water is never more than waist high, and there are many areas that are barely mid-calf. We saw a group with an umbrella stuck in the sand while they all sat under it in the water, which looked quite cozy. I would recommend visiting and I would visit it again.

Kids will love this beach, nice sand and warm water. There are some food places around with reasonably food prices.

We heard about the Pinones area from our Uber driver who said the tourists don't really know about it or go that way. When we rented our car we drove the coastal route from Carolina to El Junque. It seemed like we were there in just a few mins after leaving water beach club. There are tons of beach areas off the road, trails going through the jungle looking areas on each side of the road that lead to beach entrances, places to pull your car right up to a secluded beach area, lots of local hut type shops, bars and little food vendors. On our way back from El Junque we stopped at a roadside stand and asked the locals that were BBQing what all they had! They had tons of fried food and we wanted to try an empanada. They had about 7 different kinds of empanadas and fried fish, pork skewers etc. So we got a beef empanada because we are from Oklahoma haha and chatted it up with the woman that made it while we devoured it. Then we drove up a little more and pulled off to the beach. Parked 20 feet from the water and got out. It was private, the area we were at had more waves and had all sorts of shells on the beach. We grabbed a few souvenir sea urchin shells. They are everywhere on the beach where we were. Cool area. Going back again
