It is situated on the Caribbean Sea, offering a different experience compared to other beaches in the area, such as Carolina Beach on the north of Ponce, which is on the North Atlantic Ocean. The beach is characterized by its rocky terrain, with rocks of about 2 inches in diameter covering the area. These rocks create a distinct sound as they roll back down the incline with the ebb and flow of the surf, adding to the beach's unique charm.

The area surrounding the beach is also notable for its artistic flair, with murals and artwork adorning the road and sometimes the beach itself. A notable landmark near the beach is a cemetery with cool murals painted on the wall around it. In the past, there used to be residences close to the beach, with houses as close as 5ft off the sands of Playa de Ponce. However, all that remains now is a pier, adding to the nostalgic charm of the beach.
