water is very clean, sand is fine and no vendors. the water was very warm last time we were there. not very many 10 footers but we saw them every day. Always red flagged but always have to pay attention.

The #1 beach in Ixtapa, hands down!! It is private at Las Brisas Hotel. The sand was light in color and so soft and sugary. The water was reminiscent of the turquoise Caribbean waters. The waves were perfectly crashing and flowing up the beach. It was lovely for walking, swimming, sunbathing, photography....everything! A lifeguard was on duty and that was... More

You can't get here unless you stay at the Las Brisas...well, I guess you could if you boat or parachute in. Usually big waves but clean and fun.
