Playa la Ropa, Zihuatanejo

4.5
#1 of 72 in Outdoors in Guerrero
Beach Nature / Park
Renowned as one of the most beautiful beaches in the city, Playa la Ropa offers visitors a variety of activities as well as scenic views. Named "Clothing Beach" (supposedly after a Spanish ship wrecked and spilled silk on the shore), the 1 km (half mile) stretch of powdery sand is surrounded by palm trees and lush green hills. Spend time walking along the beach, watching parasailers glide above, or hanging out in one of the open-air bars. Known as good for swimming, the beach is also suitable for learning to surf or snorkel, renting sailboats, or waterskiing.

  • The sand is fine and Golden, the calm surf (gets rough if they walk over to the bottom) and the delicious food. Try the camaronillas, will not regret.

  • This beach is beautiful. Textbook! Lots of people in stretches near carparks but plenty of open spaces anyway. The water is warm and clear enough to see a small manta ray about our tootsies.  more »
