Playa Linda is a public beach with a wharf and boats to take you to the island. Nice sand to walk leading to vast area with food and souvenirs vendors. Ultra friendly and respectful. Sunday is the real experience.

They have service at the beach so we ordered water and soda and in the afternoon we went into the restaurant to eat. Very good mexican food and they helped us a... More

Playa Linda is a chill off the beaten path beach with plenty of shops to buy souvenirs at for less than you hotel gift shop. Plenty of water sports available for a tiny fee.

Great surfing beach, pay 50 pesos and park your car in the parking lot of the camp site. The campsite is at the end of Playa Linda, so you can shower off and use the pool. Forget Saladita, Playa Linda is not a far paddle out and your close to Ixtapa.

Good waves for surfing and bodyboarding. But be ready for the strong currents and long paddle! The waves are pretty fast too. Great place... I just need to be in better shape!

Walking distance from the Azul and Azul Grand resorts. Beautiful beach. Great shopping area, as good as anything else in Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa. Had drinks at a wonderful little bar off the beach. Crocodile area is right there. Boat wharf for Ixtapa island is there. Some quaint places to eat, that looked really good, were there as well though we... More

Playa Linda is a beautiful beach to walk along and explore. There is a nice surf spot at the end of the beach near the campgrounds. Has a nice break with some really good sized waves. Make sure you check out the natural crocodile habitat near the roundabout. You will be able to get close to live crocs, turtles, iguanas,... More
