“Spent the entire vacation right there”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

We were referred to the beach by friends with instructions " Find a table with an umbrella and chairs". Exactly what we did and sat and enjoyed the Beach as well as all of the benefits. They provided excellent service catering to our every needs and when we got too hot we simply walked a few paces into the Ocean.
There were a few vendors who were polite but managed to stop by every few minutes. No big deal though.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

It is very near downtown Vallarta, with a Pier like a "Sailing boat" where you can go to have a nice marine navigation to the "Arrecife" or to "Yelapa Island", or to "Mismaloya", or to many other places in Vallarta.
There are a lot of parachute riders on the beach.

“Not the best playa”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

This beach is walking distance from the popular Malecon area. Best feature is its close proximity to many on the beach restaurants. The beach is nothing special, but there are parasailing and other water activities onsite. Gay beach area.

“Beautiful sunsets!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This was our favorite beach in Puerto Vallarta. We ended up here three out of five nights that we were in PVR (June 2013). We liked to go in the late afternoon, score a table in the sand at one of the many beachside restaurants and relax. We played in the waves (nice, big waves at that time of day!), had a few beers, and watched the sunset. I noticed that early evening is a nice, quiet time of the beach; it is far less crowded and there are a lot fewer peddlers then as well.

“Excellent beach”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

This place has nice soft sand and not too crowded (in April anyway). There are nice big waves to play in but be carefull if you don't swim. Undertow can be a problem for some but isn't too bad.
