When we found the public beach, we were directed to park by the restaurant servers followed by a "let me take you to a table" as soon as... More

If you love a quiet walk on the beach then Playa Linda is the beach for you. It is a stop off point for the boats to Ixtapa Island and where the pier is. Lots of little restaurants there, close to the alligator refuge and just a short walk from the Azul and the Azul Grnad

Smaller beach. Shopping at one end of the beach. A few places to eat right on the beach. Some entertainment on the plaza. Not a big beach but a busy fun beach. Don't forget to check out the alligators just past the shopping area.

We went horse-back riding here. On the beach, with the waves, the horses were wonderful and we did a few sprints to and fro across the beach!

Shopping (for a price!), decent bathrooms, wildlife, and swimming if you're not up for a boat ride! We were venturing on to the island so didn't spend too long but it was fun to see lizards, crocodiles, and other creatures (free of charge) on the way.

Called Playa LInda because it is beautiful and it is. Also quite crowded, but not oppressively so. Great place to people watch, or catch a ride on one of those ocean kite ride thingy's (forget what they're called). Close to hotels and restaurants.
