“Best Beach in Manzanillo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

My friend and I travelled to Manzanillo from December 1-8. On the 7th, we decided to hit the market in Santiago and then spend some time at Miramar Beach. The west coast of Mexico is beautiful but the beaches aren't very swimmable because of the undertow and waves. Miramar is different - the sand is wonderful and we didn't see a rock in the water at all. You have to walk out about 100 yards before you encounter waves that will reach your waist. The beach stretches a long way and is a great place to interact with locals. There are some shops and b bars nearby and some vendors across the street. If you are heading to this beach from Manzanillo, just hop on the bus, pay your 7 pesos and you are there is next to no time.

“Playa Miramar in Santoiago”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Miramar, by far, the best beach in Manzanillo. Great for families and kids. The crystal clear water of Playa Miramar is something to enjoy. We live here full time and use the beach most every day of the week.

“Fun beach for active people!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

We went body surfing. Rented palapas and bought some beers and seafood on a stick. There is a guy who has a surf shack across the street. He was awesome. The whales were in the distance, which was so cool. You do need to be in shape as body boarding is quite a workout. All in all it was really awesome and I can't wait to go back.

“Great beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Great beach for kids and adults. We came in June and the beach is very quiet without a lot of crowds. The water temp is perfect and there has been a nice breeze while we were here. The west end of the beach has quite a few ramada restaurants and more at the east end. Try El Indio in the middle for some great coconut shrimp. Great beach for long walks.

“ONe of the most beautiful and clean beaches I have seen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

We have enjoyed the beach there so much. It is wonderful to watch the pelicans driving for fish. The children and sometime adults flying their kites. The beach is a very long , nearly a large U shape. If you are a person that like to rest, read and watch people welcome to Playa Miramar. You will never get tired on it. Heading back next year. See ya
