Clean, friendly and the food is really good too.

There is a nice restaurant or choose to sit right down on the beach, it's all very clean, great staff and good food. It is worth the drive to visit.

Clean beaches, friendly people, quiet place and very low tide! Perfect for families, to swim for hours. It is a secure place, at least from me, danger free and I enjoyed it.

Great beach - close to the bar. The beach is in the main costal road. There are outdoor restaurant and bars nearby for a relaxing afternoon.

We also took a boat ride to see the lagoon, there were quite a few species of birds and we... More

Is where the lake and the sea join and the sun sets, breath taking only problem is that you can only swim at the lake because it's open sea but it's worth wile to go there, food is excellent, the fish is very fresh as in they fish it every day

I took sunbath in this peaceful and popular beach. Fishing is one great activity you can do here in this beach. We were all fully packed and went on to this beach just to explore it and had a really wonderful time. It is a 40-minute drive from the Acapulco. It is a great beach if you want to be... More
