I almost hate to review this as I don't want it over run by tourists but it really is a beautiful drive and beautiful beaches. Water is bath-warm and pristine. There's nothing I don't love about Mexican culture so it's going to be a luv-review.

We were told to go to the restaurant there to eat the Chocolata clams, so that's what we did. The beach did not look enticing at all, although it was chilly that day. Just not my style.

Sitting under the new palapa with our feet in the sand we enjoyed a lovely serving of seafood ceviche, with a nice glass of cool beer. It was perfect.

Water is a deep, turquoise blue and green. There is only one very good restaurant, try the clams. A good place to relax.

Pichilingue is not the prettiest beach, but we enjoyed an afternoon kayaking there. There is a rocky outcropping on the right that has a small but colorful reef with plenty of fish. Uncrowded and pleasant.

Lovely beach with places for food, rentals and drinks, however, if the wind is blowing out of the North this beach gets blown out. So, good place to visit on a less windy day.

The large restaurant with the sandy floor also turned out to be one of our favourites in this area. We shared a fried whole fish and it was delicious. This beach although looked like it was too close to the Ferry terminal action turned out to be one of the best for snorkelling. Off to the right hand side if... More
