Great beach!!! Long stretches of lovely golden sand and so clean! Clean turquoise water! Minimum of hawkers but they are all friendly and won't harrass you!

My wife and I are dedicated ocean swimmers and scuba divers and have been in oceans around they world. We were in Zihuatanejo the latter part of March when a strong low pressure system couped with high tides created a lot of shoreline wash off.

So many things to do along the beach - bars, restaurants, massages, parachute rides, Hobie Cats, etc. A very clean beach with clean water and small waves perfect for boogie boarding.

We stayed recently at Club Intrawest which has a frontage on to this beach. Whilst there is a fair bit of development along it, it has just about managed to keep it's beautiful basic character. It's also a public beach so there is a mixture of local people and hotel guests which is so much better than situations where hotels... More

We recently spent two weeks on Playa Ropa in Zihautenejou. Here the beach is beautiful, golden sand and crystal clear water. The beach here is quite protected with a good surf, not too rough but great for beach activities like boogie boarding, snorkelling, paddle boarding, kayaking, etc. There are a lot of vendors on the beach that rent equipment but...
