Nice beach friendly people!

The beach was the best part of Stone Island. The beach was flat so was great for going for a long walk and the waves weren't too big. We got to the island by taking the ferry... read more

The beach was the best part of Stone Island. The beach was flat so was great for going for a long walk and the waves weren't too big. We got to the island by taking the ferry that the locals use so ended up on the other side of the island. We had to take a taxi to get to... More

our trip started with the boat tour around the caves and the bird poop island, lol, which were totally white.....we then went and docked and rode in a wagon pulled by a tractor to the beach bar area.....we chose to do snorkelling, wasn't really impressed with that, but then again I'm kind of spoiled by turquoise blue calm waters of...

We took the ferry to Stone Island and walked to the beach area. The beach was very peaceful and the sand was different from the sand in Mazatlan city which was a fun change. There are lots of restaurants and beach vendors so it was busy but still seemed peaceful.

We grabbed some beach chairs and umbrellas in front of one of the restaurants. We got there at about 9 in the morning, so it was nice and quiet and hardly anyone on the beach. But not soon after we got settled in, the venders started coming. We were talked to every 5 minutes and it got really annoying. We... More

We got the water taxi over to Stone Island. Was only $30 Pesos return ticket. Only about 5 minute ride. Went to for a walk down the beautiful beach. Stopped at a couple of the many beach side dinning places. Will do this again as it was a neat experience and not busy. Would go for the day next time.... More

Drove down to the water taxi ($2.10 round trip). Once at the landing on Stone Island, walked the village. Small but nice. Ended in Phili's I think was the name, next to Lefty's. It was a Monday which was nice because not crowded. Used their palapas and chase lounges........free if you are eating or drinking there. Food was great! Beach,... More

We have been to Mazatlan a number of times on a cruise ship, so when we returned in March by Cruise ship we were looking for something new and easily accessible from the cruise ship dock; And that was Stone Island! Once you leave the ship and ride the "trolley" to the terminal and information center, walk pass the taxis... More

Great beach but if you are looking for luxury setting, this is not the place for you. Also great for horse back riding, ATV riding or just taking long walks on the beach.

I had the best drink there: it was pineapple and coconut (no alcohol) and it tasted fantastico. We took the little boat over and just walked on the beach which seemed to go forever. Things looked relatively not busy, but got a bit more so after noon. I think tourism is suffering. Not an exciting time, but relaxing (maybe more... More
