The beach of Playa Chica has always been very popular in Playa del Carmen for both sunbathers and divers. The local Town Hall has recently made many improvements to this area. There is now a new stainless steel railing for added security on the promenade, improved showers and benches with shaded areas. There is also a new promenade which connects Playa Chica to the small cove in front of the Hotel Fariones. It’s an area we recommend you visit if you are lucky enough to be staying on one of our Puerto del Carmen villas.
