Playa Chica is a beautiful little beach, perfect for diving. There are often many diving school mini buses from all over the island lined up along the front. The water is very clear and several varieties of colourful fish are abundant, to be seen from the jetty, or around your feet if you paddle into the sea from the beach! The views and scenery here are stunning!
Lovely spot with a great little cafe in the pier. Lots of activities to take part in, scuba, snorkling and paragliding to name but a few. Clean waters for swimming and a lovely sheltered beach if you just want to sit and read a book. A really nice place and not too far away from the old town.
