We didn't go on the Island, but our boat hung out in the bay and we went swimming and diving from the boat. Had a great time!

7 of us spent a day wheeling around Stone Island in 2 jeeps. It's a long drive to get there but well worth it. We drove up and down the beautiful white sand beach, found big sand dollars, ate, swam and did a bit of exploring. Great there for swimming as the waves are smaller than in other areas. We... More

Spent some quiet time on Stone Island on a sunny February day. Most of the island is made up of coconunt groves that are working farms. Took the horse drawn carriage through the little town which was interesting, but you really visit the island for the virtually deserted, pristine beach. The water was warm and clear and the beach is... More

We took this tour of Stone Island on March 29, 2015. The group of 4 of us were not impressed with the horse ride. We thought it was going to be on the beach but instead it was through the little town. The horses knew exactly where to go, they have been doing the route for years it seemed. The... More

This was my 7th trip to Mazatlan, but my 1st trip to Stone Island. The dark sand beach is long and curved, with lined with local restaurants under palapas and other coverings. It's a nice change of pace from my regular Mazatlán experiences. We took a pulmonia to the dock, and paid 30 pesos each for a roundtrip ride on... More

Take the short ferry over to stone Island for a nice quiet and swimmable beach. It features a beautiful beach with a number of restaurants and bars to keep you nourished. We rented ATVs and drove a long way down the beach! Next time: banana boat ride!

Arrived by ferry, then taken to resort on wagon pulled by tractor. A bit dusty on wagon ride, but different. Lots of vendors, but the resort didn't allow them in our marked off area. Food and service were good, but not sure if I got food poisoning at this resort, or on the boat!

We actually went back three times during the week we stayed in Mazatlan. The locals on the beach are extraordinarily friendly and not pushy. The beach itself is long and beautiful and although the sand is darker (not white) it was warm and beautiful in the water. The woman who sells hats is amazingly warm and friendly and, again, not...
