Sayulita Beach, Sayulita

3.6
#2 of 14 in Parks in Riviera Nayarit
Go off the beaten path at Sayulita Beach, a laid-back destination in the eponymous surfer village. The shallow water and gentle waves make the beach a good place for families and children, as well as those learning how to surf. Walk on the warm white sand, laze in a hammock, or indulge in a variety of snacks sold by beach vendors. While it's fun to sit back and watch the surfers glide on the waves, be aware that the beach gets crowded on the weekends and holidays.

Where to stay in Sayulita

Most budget-friendly options sit in the center of town, a few streets back from the beach, with Avenida Revolucion and the area around Sayulita Plaza offering the widest range of guesthouses, pensions, and affordable hotels. If you're looking for something a bit more secluded and luxurious, head to the west end of the curving bay, where you'll find boutique hotels and villas offering good views and easy access to the beach.
