One of the nicest beaches I have ever been to. The beach extended in both directions for as far as you could see. All soft sand, very clean. Big waves, clean water. There were thunder showers most evenings which were fun to watch from our...More

While the sand is more of a buff color, and the water is not crystal blue, the resort works very hard to keep the beach clean. There are great cabanas if you want to relax. You will see the most beautiful sunsets!

Coarse and soft sand beach. Great for walking and running. Lots of people walking in the morning. We were not plagued by vendors when sitting on the beach or walking. The tidal range is not great but there were waves up to 1 metre. Safe...More

We stayed at a condo right on the beach, in Bahia de Banderas close to the Grand Velas hotel. We where there August 11-16, so low season and not crowded at all ;-) The beach is really clean and if you go on an early...More

The beach in Nuevo is nice, nor rocky and with long stretches to walk. Tide can be calm or rough depending on weather but we had many days of very calm waters. I really enjoy Nuevo beaches for relaxing and just watching the waves and...More
