Come to this beach if you want solitude with a few restaurants offering good fare for reasonble rate. The beach is long (ergo the name) but the surf is formidable at best. Take a small bus to the highway, walk or pay a guy to drive the rest of the way. Many firms from Zihua use this place for "team-building"... More

Playa Larga is the area at the north end of this beach. Very few people. The day I was there the waves were way to big for swimming and I was told that the rip tides are really strong. I just enjoyed peacefully walking as far as I could. Make sure to bring some type of footwear as the sand... More

It would have been 5 star but the ocean in that area has some nasty rip tides and was recommended not to swim or body surf. Walked the beach and had drinks and lunch at one of the beach side stops. Fantastic service, food and prices. Hard to believe that a beach like that might of had 20 people within... More

Off the beaten path, away from the Mexican/Canadian/US tourists, sits a sparsely covered stretch of beach to the South. If you can find the smoothly paved back road, notice the beach front property, and quiet little hotels as you drive to the extreme south of the beach. A lagoon blocks your journey, but you have arrived, A number of little... More

We have been going here for 5 years and usually go once a week, and we are here for 10 weeks. Our trip to Quatro Hermanos was very disappointing. There was no usual greeting, happy to see you, please come with me and we will seat you where you want, which was not a problem because there was no one... More

Cold beer and fantastic food. We stopped at several spots along the ocean and all were comparable with the food and drinks. Friendly and welcoming. My favorite beach to walk,

I discovered that horseback riding is not my cup of tea. If it were, this activity would have been perfect. It was very romantic and felt like we had the beach all to ourselves, plus the guide of course... Very few people in sight.
