I prefer Nuevo Vallarta beach to Puerto Vallarta. Nice and quiet and not a lot of vendors. Good sand. Walkable. Short walk to Bucerius.

Unfortunately we visited Nuevo Vallarta during the rainy season and the nighttime storms meant lots of debris being washed down from the surrounding jungle. I imagine that it is a wonderful place at other times.

The beach at Occidental Grand was perfectly groomed. The other beaches has signs of erosion, such as deep grooves in the sand so walking in these areas was an up and down activity but the beach at Occidental was smooth, even and groomed. Very pretty and relaxing.

Be careful of the location of the beach vs the river discharge - especially during the rainy season as lots of dirt and sediment are washed into the bay. The flow is counter clockwise. This should help the decision process.

Love that I can walk until exhausted and still not run out of beach. Resorts keep the sand nicely groomed so can walk barefoot. Vendors stroll the beach but do not come unto the resort. All are friendly and fun to talk with.

We walked the beach from the Grand Mayan to the Grand Luxxe. Only good thing is that it is fairly flat. Had a putrid smell, so not sure where that was coming from. Lots of rocks in the sand so need to watch where you are going. This is not a white sandy beach. Sand is a mixture of brown... More

Lovely sandy, clean, beach but watch out for the sea. The current is very strong and the waves huge.

The beach was great, no sea weed & was well kept. Super relaxing to lay out and swim in the ocean. We were even lucky enough to see a Turtle at night laying eggs in the sand!
