If one wanted to, one could make La Playa a destination for devotion and pilgrimage! It has many aspects of a "religious" experience.

--The view of the beach and the amazing sunsets brings one into another realm.

--The food and libations are heavenly.

--The mango margaritas, in particular, allow one to reach new spiritual heights.

I don't need to say anymore....

I can't say enough about La Playa. First of all you can't beat sitting on the sand watching the ocean while eating. I have seen surfers, I have seen a whale and sometimes just the pelicans.
Everything I ever had here is great. I love the shrimp tacos for a light meal and the carne assada for a big one. My husband loved the burger, my friends loved the ceviche.
Friendly staff.
It is the southern-most restaurant - on your left as you face the ocean.

Spend the whole day here sitting on the beach. We ordered beers and few drinks along with a few different snacks. Everything we tried was good. The service was great. The guys were always coming around checking to see if we needed anything.
