    Great swimmable waters
    Go to this beach for a swim….. easier waters to navigate, rocks to explore, easy snorkel, available beach chairs and umbrellas (200 pesos/chair). Lots of vendors but not as many as main south beach. Cemetery close by “Beach of the Dead”. Take your own cooler with beer to save money. Easy to get to with Golf Cart.

    Fun adventure
    Fun little ride through the cemetery in our golf cart. Parked, woman asked for 100 pesos to park. Two food/drink stands just before the entrance, we got some frozen pineapple margaritas to hang with at the beach. It was very low key, looked like mostly locals. You can just leave your stuff by the shady rock area and swim you don’t need to buy an umbrella as long as you have a beach blanket you’re good there’s some shady trees. A peaceful escape from the other beaches for sure.

    Favourite beach in Sayulita!
    Our favourite beach in Sayulita! This beach is much quieter than the main beach, and the waves were perfect for boogie boarding and swimming! No rocks or coral, so it was easy for the kids to float, swim & play in the waves. Some tips: -take a golf cart here if you have one (and they may charge you 10$ a day to park it. We were able to bargain for 80 pesos) -lots of vendors, but they are all friendly. We ordered beers (40 pesos) & pops for the kids, you can buy bracelets, get hair braided etc etc. -you can rent chairs and tables, umbrellas, loungers for the day if you want. So you can just walk down with a towel and some cash, and you’re set up for the day! One day the waves were quite big, so if it’s windy, prepare for that (every beach was like this that day). Truly paradise! We came to this beach three times and had a blast each time!

    Check out Playa los Muertos
    Playa los Muertos is much nicer than Sayulita beach. Not many people go there (mostly parents and younger children) so it is much quieter. The waves aren’t as strong and the sand is finer. You can rent chairs from the restaurants but there’s lots of shade if you don’t want to spend money. Best of all, there are very few hawkers.

Beach in Sayulita and located in a much nicer cove However, keep in mind, there is a gang that operates the beach and charges $100 for parking cars or golf carts,$10 pesos to
Use the bathroom when originally said $5 pesos and once at the door they said they maid a mistake and it was $10 to use dirty unkept bathroom. $400 for umbrella and 3 lounge chairs and umbrella. Make sure to pay upfront. They originally said $300 pesos and then charged $400. We told them it wasn’t the agreement and then became aggressive towards us. Will never go here again as we felt threatened from this gang. To bad Mexico has these kind of people harassing tourist who support the Mexican economy.

There are a lot of sellers as well who will offer you stuff every 30 seconds.

I say we charge Mexican tourist to use bathrooms in countries they visit since Mexico seems to be the only place I have visited that charges to use a bathroom.

We went on a day when weather wasn't amazing and waves were big. Normally it's supposed to be a little calmer than Sayulita Beach. Still worth checking out though. The walk through the cemetery is pretty cool.

Main beach is much busier and the short walk and going through the colourful cemetery is really cool. You can put your towel out or rent chairs and an umbrella. There’s also food and drinks available from vendors. We did bring our own little cooler though. There are bathrooms but just like most places you have to pay ten pesos. Parking is available as well for a fee.

The beach is right after the cemetery. It is quite small and very few people go there. The main beach becomes very crowded and noisy. This one is perfect for escaping all the noise.
You can also climb over the rocks to reach a different one, even more secluded. Water shoes are recommended for sensitive feet.

the beach is pretty but it’s grown to be quite crowded for its size. there are vendors everywhere asking you to buy things, to the point where it gets annoying. i guess one plus is that you can rent chairs if you don’t want to carry them or lay on a towel.

if you want a watered down version of the main sayulita beach, come here. if you want seclusion walk to carricitos or malpasos

We spent a few hours at Playa los Muertos with our two little windows. The water is a bit cleaner than Sayulita Beach and there are less people. While there are no full time amenities, we found plenty of vendors offering umbrella rentals, food, drinks, toys for sale, etc. None of them were pushy. We were happy to rent a spot to catch relief from the sun. Heading back tomorrow!

We thought this was the "quiet" beach in Sayulita. It is, until about 11:00 am when all the tourists arrive. It is a smaller, pretty beach and swimmable, but with rental chairs and alcohol service it quickly becomes loud and crowded. It would be better if that type of "beach experience" stayed on the main beach and this place was for people with beach towels and blankets.
