Great beach and excellent cafes. Boating and surfing at its finest. Just a hop skip and a jump to hotels, boardwalk and boutiques.

We've been visiting Zihuatanejo now for 14 years. Playa la Ropa is hands down the best beach in the area. (Isla Ixtapa is nice too, but you have a take a boat to get there.) Someone mentioned Playa Larga. It's beautiful, but very dangerous to swim there. Some of the restaurants/bars along Playa la Ropa will charge you to rent... More

Get your work out by walking this fabulous long sandy beach, eat at the Restaurant "La Perla" Breakfast , Lunch or Dinner at spectacular sunsets and spend the day under an umbrella with a lounge chair and Camastro. "Las Tiritas" (thinly cut raw fish, marinated in lemon juice and cilantro with pink onion) are excellent.

This beach is about a mile long. Water sports, like parasailing and jet skiing, were available. But I was here for the swimming and jogging along the tame surf. Locals offered their goods, but were not an annoyance. Some good restaurants nearby. The beach was not crowded when I was here, on a weekday.

Nothing to dislike. A lot to do right on the beach! Kayak, parasailing and much more. You won't see a lot of visitors- it mostly locals enjoying the beach.
