Owner description: Beach with a family atmosphere featuring a cycling/inline skating path along the marina.
Reviewed March 13, 2013

This beach was mostly locals who rode the bus from Ixtapa or Zihuatanejo. When we got there we were followed by a restaurant owner who kept trying to get up to eat at his place. We explored the beach and then sat down for a beer at the man's restaurant to relax.
They gave us the gringo expensive menu and then the waiter lied to us when it came time for our bill and tried to charger up almost double. Either he thought we had money or wouldn't notice or both. I had to point out the price to him and he apologized but knew he was busted. It may be an all right beach if you don't get hassled or overcharged. If you want a more peaceful beach, staying near your resort in Ixtapa may be better.

Only 9 pesos (80 cents) to ride the bus to Playa Linda. Long beach with very few people on it once you get past the restaurants and stalls as the beginning of it. Take the time to go for a stroll and make sure you go for a swim. You'll love it!

This beach is an easy, inexpensive bus ride from the main Ixtapa beach and is a lovely place with restaurants, a tacky shopping area that is fun to poke around in and has a nature preserve nearby. One can get to Ixtapa island from the pier here too.

Wonderful beach, enjoyed the sunsets and birds. Used by many locals as well, everyone was friendly, very safe. One thing I did notice, however, was the garbage on the beach and a lack of garbage cans. I think if there were more, people would use them.

Playa Linda is a great place to spend the day. Really liked the beach and it has a great little ambience. Would like to go back and spend a little more time there.
