Playa La Chiva #16-17


Alternate name:
Blue Beach (Navy name)
Good for:
Swimming, snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, sunbathing, fishing

Bathrooms at #3 & #12, and another one on the main road before it turns to gravel
Sand Type/Color:
White sand, very natural with fan corals and other natural debris from time to time.
Water Quality: 
The water is usually crystal clear and beautiful.

La Chiva #’s 16 & 17 are near the point at the end of La Chiva (Punta Conejo).

There is sand and rocks here on the shore, and you can walk out to the small cayo through ankle or knee deep water (you probably want water shoes for this). The water is very shallow but if you go a little toward #15, you can get into water deep enough to snorkel, paddleboard, etc. This is not the large Cayo known as Isla Chiva, it is a small rock to the East. Unlike the big Cayo, this one is OK to walk on. These beaches are a good place to explore, snorkel, paddleboard, or maybe fish from the shore.

There is not much shade here so plan accordingly.
