Nice sandy beach but depending on the season has a significant undertow.. Very unpopulated for the area except for some itinerant vagabonds and some relatively harmless surf bums*(not a pejorative)...Not to count all the tourist boats...Some great food but overpriced .

Just a short walk over from Club Med, Playa Linda is a quaint and rustic place. Found a beautiful skirt for a great price. Saw some crocodiles and some men hanging upside down on a tall pole playing flutes.

This beach in particular is a bit over crowded and not as clean as the other ones. But over all it was beautiful.

Hola! estaremos hospedados a 2 cuadras de la playa Madera. Según entendí, para ir a la isla Ixtapa hay que tomar una lancha en Playa Linda. Alguien sabe cómo llegar y si es muy lejos?
