Not an island, but we tourists don't know it and don't care.

This is your typical fun booze day trip, but it is relaxing and easy to do. Open bar, choice of activities, banana boat etc. and a quick but good lunch. Recommended.

The water is obviously very salty however the waves are not as strong as in the actual ocean waters of Mazatlan! The water was close to being crystal clear and they were comfortably cool. The sun was bright, there were many activities to do as well depending on what package you purchased to get to the island. I went on... More

Dont hesitate to book through one of the many places that run tours/excursions to Stone Island. We booked thru Mazatlan Tours and they took care of us and made sure we were well fed and didnt lack drink!

We really didn't like.. The food wasn't good it took a long time ..activities were kind of boring and the horses were almost dying. So therefore I would not recommend anybody go to the Island. The only fun part about it was coming back we got to go around and see the big stones in the middle of the ocean... More

It is difficult to arrive by car. There is not a way . Food is not as good as expensive. Too crowded. Service is too slow. Visit other places instead.

It's not really an island, it's a peninsula. We used to go there a lot, many years ago, it has a lot of positives and I recommend checking it out. It's definitely a daytime haunt, by sunset everyone's gone. We quit going much because the beach became overrun with motorized vehicles, lots of big loose dogs, it's kind of grungy,... More

Separated from the city by the harbor, Stone Island is very much a place where time stood still. You get there by harbor water taxi then walk along the beach until you find a spot you like. The best option is to choose one of the palapa restaurants as your base. Our favorite is without doubt Molokai (reviewed). Here the... More

Most air, ground, and cruise ship packages offer as an option a day trip to Stone Island. You will be ferried across the Mazatlan harbor, loaded onto tractor pulled wagons, taken to a predetermined restaurant, and most likely kayak the bay, horseback ride along the beach, and/or take the banana boat ride before returning to Mazatlan proper. Stone Island is... More

A rough ride out to see a small sea lion colony, then to shore. Many of the activities were tired... as in the horses looked like they just wanted to stay in the shade. The beach was nice, and unlike many in the area, one could safely go in the water which felt wonderful. The lunch was exceptional. We had... More
