Barra Vieja is an off-the-beaten-path beach that will get you away from the crowds and the expensive prices found in Acapulco. Its relaxing and conducive for soft talk, drinks, and great seafood with your friends. The waves are too rough to get into, but you can stroll along the sand and get your feet wet while admiring the scenic Pacific ocean. The food and the reduced crowds are the draw, however. The downside is that it's a bit hard to get to, but if you have a car or can hire transportation, it's worth the trek.

Great beaches south of Acapulco Diamanté area. Lots of food choices here. Fresh catch of the day. I highly recommend the red snapper(guachinango). They will prepare everything to your liking. A word of caution here the ocean is open here if you're not a good swimmer stick with the local swimming pools scattered throughout this area, next to the food courts.

This is a nice many kilometers long Beach, as you can see in photos.
It is quite far from Acapulco (about 45mins drive depending on traffic). It has little food stalls and shacks in high season where you can get a bite.

Everything is a catch of the day. I love the taste the rural ambiance and the best food. They mostly don't accept credit card but bringing dollar is acceptable
