“Great Beach for all beach activities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

The beach at Nuevo Vallarta is what beaches should be: clean, no hassles, great waves. We spent hours body surfing. One of our party had an encounter with a jelly fish, but this is just bad luck/time of the year thing. Very few vendors to hassle you. As a consequence no beers to buy on the beach. You can walk for over an hour in one direction. We love this beach.

“Great beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

You can walk for hours on this beach! It is a beautiful, white sandy beach. We encounter some of the wildlife including a sea snake and a small stingray. We think they were brought in by the heavy rollers from a storm outside the bay. Pretty neat to see.

Miles of sandy beach, lots of great walking and site seeing. WE love looking at birds and shells along the way. Saw a few dolphins and one whale as well.

Great waves, walk for kilometres, clean, breathtaking sunsets. Did I mention the waves! We walked from the small town Buceros to our hotel The Marival it took just over one hour and nota single vendor harassed us.

“low tide walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

The beach at Nuevo Vallarta is excellent for a stroll. We found that low tide it is much easier to walk due to a flat surface and fine sand. You will not find a lot of “Beer Stops” like you might in some of the small town beaches up North but there is plenty of room to roam. The vendors are few and much more responsive to “no gracias”. Locals can be found throwing their nets along the shore. It is also hard to pass up a $20.00 message at any of the several shops set up on the beach.
