Great Beach!

Nice beach for a little surfing or just relaxing - my husband did the first and I of course did the latter. Not a lot people - a plus. Great seafood restaurants all around!

There are many restaurants to eat fresh fish and at the end of the road, just off the shore of "Gody restaurant" there are safe and affordable boats to sail in the "Laguna de Tres Palos"

Is a nice place to visit, quiet than Acapulco beach, but the waves are very strong, making the beach dangerous, a good point is you can find many traditional restaurants, where to taste "Pescado a la talla" very good a traditional plate from Acapulco. Be aware with the ATV, you can freely rent one in the beach, they are running... More

Nice secluded beach. Sometimes there are nude sunbathers but not real often. Very few vendors. Reasonable prices. Don't stay too late in the day as the transportation is iffy

Fantastic beach with amazing views. Deserted when I visited. Its quite rough though so no good for weak swimmers. There is also the turtles sanctuary located on this beach that is well worth a visit.

We went to spent the evening near the sea, the ambient and the food were excellent, the service is great in Acapulco; food can vary on quality by each location; but the sunset in this area is amazing; the specialty in this zone: Pescado ZARANDEADO spicy and garlic lovers will be on Paradise.

This has got to be one of the best surf beaches in the world. Today, with perfect glassy waves I have seen only 2 people surfing.

I stopped off at one of the many restaurants on the beach with some friends after a boat tour through the mangrove bayous. The beach was wide and extended in both directions. There was a fairly strong rip current when we were there, but it was swimmable. I wish I could remember the name of the restaurant, but it was... More

The beach is not so nice and it can be a little dangerous to swimm there but there is a famous fish you have to try "Pescado a la Talla" I would recomend the place "Cira la Morena II" it's really amazing the place is very simple at the beach but it's really worth.

It is at the end of the peninsula Diamente and it is full of little restaurants that serve mainly fish. The tables are on the sand and you literally eat on the ocean. When you order your fish make sure to specify that you do not want the blackened barbecued fish otherwise it will be totally over cooked. It's worth... More
