Playa la Ropa, Zihuatanejo
(4.5/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
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.
