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.

Beach all to yourself by taking a walk. Nice ocean and not crowed during the mid week. Shopping - food - cold beer and a swim.... what more does one need.

We did turtle releasing at playa Linda when we visited Ixtapa. The beach itself was something beautiful. It was very quiet, and we were there at sunset. You need to watch the incredible color changes! Orange, silver, pink.., It was gorgeous. There were lots of rocks to one side. It allowed for some most amazing pictures. A man with a... More

We've been there twice and have never been disappointed. Always something to see or do. The person talking to the crocks was very entertaining. There was nothing there I did not dislike.

I like this beach when you can get on it . It's very popular with the locals and if you go at Easter holidays you will see more umbrellas then the beach! There,s a small shopping market and a gator sanctuary there to visit.
