I like this area of the Bay because there are plenty of water sport activities available in this area! The water is not as deep and the kids are always in the water also the sand is nicier to walk on.

The best location, banks, bars, kids entertainment, restaurants & stores, all can be done walking around. The gold sand, warm clean calm beach is beautiful. Almost all days summer time in this place. To rest, for fun or romance is a great choice.

beautiful to look at, but Acapulco is a very dangerous place, stay on main streets, no jewelry, minimum of cash, walk the beach if possible, careful @ night

Very nice and quiet beach next to the militar base. But you need to go there by sea in a boat. The water is nice for swimming and not to much people. Rent a boat and go there for a nice beach day. Good sand...More

Took my family and a few friends behind the old cici water park to rent a few flat boards. Basically a wider surf board with paddle you stand on and row yourself around the bay. IMO the price was right from the word go i...More
