  • One of my favourite beaches in Mexico. Food is great, view amazing. Not overly crowded. Many locals come here. There are areas to explore nearby for the adventurous. Highly recommend beach shoes for the water.
  • I love this place, beautiful! There are tons of make shift restaurants on both sides of the narrow island. As soon as you get off the boat, there are people on you, trying to get you to go to their restaurant. We've been a few times now, and all the offerings and pricing is similar. They bring out the fresh fish, and you pick the one you want for your group. What I really love is, you order your food and buckets of beer. You then tell them what time you want your meal delivered to you, and it magically shows up at your chosen time 🐟🍚🥗 🍻
  • A must-see destination when coming to Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa are. Water is clear and calm for swimming and snorkeling. Lots of good bars and restaurants along beach. Where footwear to the toilet or you're going to get athlete's foot!
