Last time I enjoyed a beach was on Waikiki in 1976! In all my travels, since...have been a pool person. Loved the water temperature, walking experience, bar availability and vibe. Next time I visit I want to experience La Ropa...in all it's glory. Requiring less and less luxury and more love in my travel destinations.

Not too many people, but enough to enjoy. Surf is not too heavy as it's protected. Lots of places to eat and get drinks. Also lots of places to sit and sunbathe.

Have yet to try Playa Las Gatas, but Playa la Ropa seems to me to be a nicer beach than the adjacent beaches Playa La Madera or Playa Principal. It's cleaner and has more variety of restaurants & lounges... most with either umbrellas, palapas, and/or beach service. Many of the venues have been around for decades and are well-known to...

Wander this beach daily and stop at some of the places offering food or refreshments. There are all the tourist things to do like para-sailing, jet-skiing but more importantly, it is so uncontrived. Stop at the south end food places to relax in a lounge chair and umbrella, have a drink with great food and watch the sun set later... More

Love this beach. Each time we travel to Zihuatenejo we may choose a different hotel, but we always plan to be on La Ropa Beach!! Sunsets are truly amazing. Looking unto the surf from beach, it looks like the big Pacific blue is an infiniti pool. And when the sun sets... WOW!! Just like a fiery inferno sinking off the... More

There are several great restaurants on this beach. We ate beachside at The Viceroy and it was fresh and fantastic. We had a fresh coconut at Elvira another day and really enjoyed the seafood night at Club Intrawest as well. The water is clean and its a great walking beach as well.
