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.

I’ll start by saying that this is an awesome spot to enjoy the beach without fears of rip currents since there’s some natural protection. It’s like having a pool at the beach….. Bring your beach chairs & if you forget them there’s some folks that bring some then rent them. This spot is very popular but WARNING BE CAREFUL WHERE YOU PARK. Park as far away from the road as possible don’t matter how many cars you see parked on the side of the road, got a $200 txt myself. There’s no signs saying you can’t park there & the parking tkt has payment instructions but not how to appeal it. As a former resident it’s sad that they take advantage of visitors this way, the least they could do is put some NO PARKING signs. But I guess that will kill their Golden Goose ($$$$$$$)

Just a quick drive out of town along the coast and you find this jewel. Grab your snorkle mask, park on the road and go enjoy the crystal clear reef pool. Excellent in the morning early.

I love la pocita. You can either bring your own food or cross the street over. You can bring your own beach chairs or rent them as well as the umbrella.

Our valet recommended this beach as his favorite to visit on a day off. We could tell from the line of traffic headed down that it was going to be popular. We passed several inviting open air restaurants as we neared the beach and my only regret is not having time to stop for a bite! We parked on a grassy area across from the beach, which was convenient and I was thankful it was not full on this pretty Saturday afternoon. We crossed the busy street carefully with our coolers and trekked alongside the pavement until we saw people. This is definitely a family beach. Loud music and conversations emanated from beach blankets all over the sand. There were available spots, but not many. My favorite part of this beach was the small rock outcropping which held back the larger waves and made a shallow swimming area much like a calm swimming pool. Small groups were able to stand and enjoy the water without the need to struggle against the current. The beach was natural, so palm fronds and seaweed were scattered about, but it was also clean. Trash cans were lined up at regular intervals so there was no litter. Due to the proximity to the airport, planes took off frequently nearby. It was loud, but also cool to see the planes fly so close overhead. It was fun to spend an afternoon the same way that so many local residents spent their weekend days. Next time I’m stopping for food!

Water is clear, not as touristy & probably our favorite beach. Food nearby, you can rent chairs/umbrella. I was able to stand in the water 5 ft 2 in for reference.

Lovely beach. Swimming could be dangerous if you go out too far. Lots of rocks and undercurrents. Loads of places to eat.

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.

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.
