“beautiful”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

The beach and surroundings are breathtaking. We were there over the New Year's holiday and there were a lot of local families there, but still plenty of space, not incredibly packed. The water is clear with the exception of the occasional plastic grocery bag floating by. Very small waves and little current making it a great for swimming. We had a condo toward the furthest southern end of the beach. Restaurants there will let you use there lawn chairs as long as you are a patron. Others, like outside LaPerla, want around $5.00 usd to rent their chair and a beach umbrella. Beer is cheap..maybe 2.00 USD. Of course, they have wonderful tropical drinks, guacamole and chips, ceviche, etc... at most of the restaurants at reasonable prices. There were many vendors passing buy, including musicians. No one was pushy or insistent, but it was a pretty steady stream of people peddling snacks, cheap jewelry, etc. Be cautious of the $20 massages you hear about. Some people are trained and talented, others are much less experienced and you may be disappointed. Overall, worth a trip.

“Unbelievable sunsets”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

The cove faces the western part of Mexico, looking directly out to the Pacific Ocean. The sunsets are truly the most beautiful in the world.

“Clean and fun”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

The beach is sandy and the waves come in constantly although not really big waves. Lots of tourists from Mexico as well as Canada and US. Good walking as the sand is firm and it's not too far to walk the length of the beach.

“Dirty water”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

With so much boat and jet ski traffic, the bay is filled with green oily bubbles and diesel smoke. But the sand and beach are beautiful.

“The Best!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We are repeat visitors since our first trip in December 2004. Manzanillo, PV don't come close.

Beach is beautiful and kept quite clean. Gentle surf with one section of rocks where there is some close to home snorkeling (not great, but close to home!)

Many good restaurants. Close to the town center with many other restaurants.

LOVE IT!
