We only discovered this beach on our second last day in Ixtapa sadly, it was amazing! It is a public beach so it is fairly busy but it is very beautiful and perfect for people staying at the Azul Ixtapa and Grande that does not have a beach. Lots of palm trees, the water is very clean and beautiful.

This beach located in front of Club Med or between Azul Grand and Club Med. There is public access to the beach behind Azul Grand. We visited when the waves were high, not very common apparently, and still enjoyed our visit. The sand is great to play with if you have kids. There are occasional rocks in the water on... More

Next door to Azul Ixtapa Grand which doesn't have much of a beach so we were pleased to be able to spend time there. Beach was lovely, nice sand and warm waves. Great.

This gold sand beach is right next door to Azul Ixtapa Grand, where we stayed. It's in front of Club Med, but not too busy. Lots of waves, and a bit of undertow. Check for the green flag before going in the water. White flag is debatable.

Decent sand, massages, palm trees to lie under and not s super wide beach so walking for a great distance to get to the water was not an issue!

Playa Quieta is just that the quiet beach, it has public access at the far end but is mostly monopolized by the Club Med and you can guess why they plunked their resort there!!!! Great place to stop for lunch and a swim on the return bike trip to Playa Linda.

Beautiful beach about a mile long. Located south of the Azul Grand. Nice golden sand that gets very hot to walk on. Can get massages there for $40US. Great place for a walk or swim.

My wife an I stayed at the Azul Grand next door to this beach, and walked this beach multiple times. It is beautiful, and the swimming here is top notch. There is a small bar/restaurant at the public entrance called Neptunios that we stopped at multiple times for beers and ceviche. It was great!
