Great beach

Very clean beach with a few nice places to eat. This beach is very popular with the locals as well. Great place to take the kids as the water is calm

I didn't care for Playa Linda long walk from road to pier to take water Taxi to Ixtapa Island. Nice shops though but quite a ways from Ixtapa and Zihua....the Croccodile encloser is way too cool though!

This is a beach that the local families tend to frequent which makes it a lovely spot. It has many makeshift spots to eat along the beach-not a commercial strip which makes you feel like you are in a more personal setting. There is a crocodile habitat near by well worth seeing. The beach area is Definitely a place you... More

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.

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!
