Playa la Ropa is Zihuatanejo's premier beach offering a variety of tourist services and good fresh seafood restaurants. Everyone I encountered at the establishments that line the beach were welcoming and helpful. This beach was a perfect day trip from Playa Blanca which is a bit more remote.

There are many places to sit, enjoy the beach and eat delicious seafood. There are lots of options for renting chairs and eating.

I would give this beach an average score. For a city beach, it is above average but you can find much better 15 miles north of Zihuatanejo. If you are looking to be in the city, this is the best beach, although I have not seen them all.

Playa la Ropa is a very pretty beach with golden sand and plenty of waves to keep the kids happy. While we were there (stayed at Viceroy hotel), the waves were very strong. However, still a very nice beach for walking and sunbathing:)
