Snorkellers paradise
Sep 2020
This small beach is perfect for snorkelling with plenty of sealife even in shallow waters for non swimmers. It has a little cafe for ice cream and tea etc on the beach or a restaurant which always seems busy on the adjacent jetty. A lot of water activities take off from here too. Sun beds are available to rent off the sand. Busier at the weekends with the locals but it's easy enough to get a spot if you arrive before lunch.

Great beach
Jul 2020
busy little beach with locals and tourists. great to see many fish in the sea even in the shallows, and also along the rocks that stick out. Tide does move quite quickly. Little kiosk offering scuba lessons and the drinks and food very reasonable around 2 euro for a can of beer or 3 euro for a sandwhich.

Friendly beach.
Feb 2020
Playa Chica is a small intimate beach near the harbour in the old town part of Puerto del Carmen. It has good swimming with lots of fish to see in the clear water. The beach has a small shop for coffee and sandwiches, etc. There is also a shower and a public toilet. Beds may be hired a few steps above the beach, but not on the beach itself.

Snorkel and goggles required !!

I personally found the beach much nicer than Playa Grandee. It’s close to the toilet and feels more personal.
Brilliant for snorkelling and safe swimming.
Take a extra roll or french stick and feed the fish.

Nice little bay, great for swimming and snorkelling
Jan 2020
This is one of the smaller beaches and ideal for families with children. You can have a paddle, swim and snorkel relatively close to the shore. There are sunbeds and umbrellas for hire and public toilets nearby. Be warned that the toilets are used by the numerous divers that operate from the area and they get quite mucky, the toilet paper runs out quickly and I've never seen handwash in the dispenser! Having said that, at least they are convenient for the beach. There's also a small shower for washing your feet.

Fantastic!
Aug 2019
We have been visiting Lanzarote foe many years and have walked past this beach loads but never really spent anytime there. This year we decided to have a day here.
The beach is small but we had no trouble finding somewhere to sit. There are all the amenities needed for a day out without having to go far.
The highlight for us though was the snorkelling some of the best we have ever done, loads of fish in crystal clear waters.
We had a great few hours and will definitely be back again this year.

Small but perfect
Jan 2020
Small beach accessible from everywere in Puerto del Carmin. It has everything. Toiletes, showers, a bar and a watersports place. The best is that is well protected from the winds that you find in some other beaches.

Perfect for a family day!
