Nuevo Vallarta's beaches are clean, gorgeous and not too crowded. Vendors come by from time to time, but the people who hang out on them are not scary, as they are on some California beaches. The view of the mountains and palm trees in conjunction with the ocean waves is hard to describe. Absolutely stunning!

Beach is quite clean, and good for long walks. Visit small town Bucerias, 45 minutes walking from Riu.

Beautiful, long beach just made for walking. There are vendors, but they are no bothersome. You'll find a few rocks in the sand at water's edge, but much less than Puerto Vallarta.

The beach is massive so make sure you are up for a trek. Sandy but a bit coarse, loads of beach front hotels which are mainly all inclusive so if you fancy a drink on the beach head North and find a beach bar.

It's a bit far out of the way from any night life but the beach is lovely and the ocean not too cold or too rough.

Lovely soft sand that stretched for miles. Ocean was not crystal clear but very warm and great for body surfing.
