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!

If you are staying at Club Med, Azul Grand this is a beautiful beach to walk along. Massage shack at end of beach closer to Azul. $40US = great massage.

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!

A short walk from the Azul Grand, but one of the best & quiet beaches in the area. Spent mornings walking the soft sand, and wading out into the clear & calm water.

no shade, eccept for the palm trees at the very end or the playa, where security from resorts are constantly checking on you that you are not trespassing...otherways it's a great beach to go with kids, almost no waives. There is dirt with sand, so it gets a little dirty in the beginning, but then water is really clean in... More
