Kick back and soak in a tropical paradise at Playa Blanca. The crescent-shaped, palm-lined beach invites you to stretch out on its white sand, snorkel in the waters, or get active with an array of water sports. Thatched roofed huts provide necessary shade, and local vendors offer everything from handicrafts to snacks and cocktails. You can hike to this isolated beach, but the easiest and most popular way of getting here is on a boat ride from El Rodadero beach. Expect crowds during the mornings and over the weekends; by contrast, the atmosphere is much more private in the afternoons and during weekdays.
