“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

We took a tour by water taxi out to this area. The tour was great and we were on the water about an hour before getting to Stone Island. There we were pick up by tractor carts and taken to the beach and eating area. We rented a quad for 30 minutes and you can't even get part way down the beach because it is that big. Swimming is great and the sand is nice.

“a fabulous day”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

We just returned from the only vacation we'll have in Mazatlan. The main reason we won't return is because we love to swim in the ocean and it simply was not possible at our resort. Thank goodness for Isla de las Piedras!! What a lovely day we had!
We took the city bus based on directions from our hotel front desk clerk that resulted in us getting rather lost & wandering about but with our broken Spanish, we finally found the dock for the water taxi & had a fun experience crossing over.
We were thrilled to see mostly locals enjoying a lovely Sunday on this beach. We soon planted ourselves at 'Molokay' & enjoyed nice chairs, great service, cold Modelo and an outstanding big snack of cold shrimp & octopus.
Then we got into the ocean for the first and only time during our week in Mazatlan! Our visit to this little treasure made all the difference to us & our experience in this part of Mexico. We had a fabulous day.

“Sand and sun”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

In relation to where we stayed in the Cerritos area this offered more of the same which was sand and sun. There was horse back riding and 4 wheeling but this was of no interest. We ate at Ledy's and enjoyed a fairly good lunch. Take the water taxi from the pier as it was only a couple of $ for the 2 of us.

“Quiet on a Monday, Beach Bliss!”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Finally a long beach with gentle waves to frolic in! Had a lovely lunch at Carmalita's, in business since 1938! Lovely padded beach chairs to sit on the beach.
A five minute ride across in a small boat for 25 pesos return.
We loved our afternoon on Isla de las Piedras.

“Quieter than in previous years”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Stone Island seems to have suffered from the economic woes that trouble everyone else. Half the restaurants have shut down and there are a lot fewer vendors. The water taxis run half full and the walk along the beach is quieter. However, it was always a quiet, idyllic place, and the restaurants that are left offer plenty of choices. It's a wonderful place to just walk along the beach and enjoy.
