Beauty of a Beach!

We were here over New Years and it was busy, but not so jam-packed we weren't able to find a spot and relax. The sun was shining every day, and it was absolutely gorgeous weather... read more

Although when you have to be careful as if you do not speak in Spanish some of the locals will try to take more money from you! For example for coconut was 30 pesos but then when it came to paying later at the end I was told to pay 90 pesos because he cut a coconut for me and... More

We were here over New Years and it was busy, but not so jam-packed we weren't able to find a spot and relax. The sun was shining every day, and it was absolutely gorgeous weather in Zihua when we were here. The beach added to the beauty of the days. There are vendors walking along the beach, but all were...

Gorgeous Bay! Beautiful sandy beach, soft sand, no stones, no shelves, no weeds. Small waives and enjoy the warm waters with an amazing sunshine every day! If you're not staying at an hotel on the beach, there are chairs available either for a small price (100 pesos) or la Perla Restaurant, or for free at Elvira Restaurant when you order... More

One of the nicer beaches we've enjoyed in Mexico. Great for walking or running and nice enough to swim in. Good way to start the day and a nice energetic walk into town.

Beautiful clean beach. On a sheltered bay so water is calm (not much for surfing or boogie-boarding). Lots of hotels and restaurants line the shore so you can find refreshment or a lounge chair easily. Water is warm, shallow, and great for soaking!

This beach came highly recommended by folks we meet who have traveled here frequently. As pointed out by others, the restaurant La Perla provided the perfect spot for us to set-up comfortably without burning in the sun. We paid 100 pesos for an umbrella and several chairs for the day. We were able to order food and drinks without pressure.... More

This is a huge clean beach in the bay with gentle swimming water and great for walking. It is quite crowded so best to arrive relatively early. There are too many boats and jet skis allowed that get very close to the swimmers. It is by far the best beach in the bay and has many eating options for all... More

This beach is very busy during the holiday period with Mexican people who take buses in from inland towns for a day at the beach. There is TONS of action but not a lot of area to set up camp. The beach gets small during high tides and the hotels take up the beach area in front of their properties.... More

I think this is one of the best beaches for a family vacation of anywhere I have traveled. Great 1 HR massages for $15. Ice cream on the beach, Great restaurants where you can eat with your feet in the sand. Little waves, so it is good for small kids. Parasailing, Jetskiing, paddle boarding.

Playa la Ropa is a long people filled strip of beach. If you enjoy people watching, there is much to see and entertain. There are a mix of local people and tourists. We visited during high season, in January, so the scene was hopping! We did not swim, rather walked along the rocks to Playa las Gatas.
