La Chata is a northside beach with views of mainland PR to the left and Culebra to the right.

It is a quiet beach in a nice neighborhood, that is great for relaxing, beachcombing, and snorkeling the reef when the water is calm. You can see surfers here when the waves are right, but it’s not recommended for novices. To surf here, you should be both highly skilled and know the reef, to keep from “getting to know the reef” in a bad way.

There is good shade here from all of the trees overhanging the sand.
