Playa la Ropa, Zihuatanejo

4.5
#1 of 77 in Outdoors in Guerrero
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.

  • Our hotel was on this beach and it's your quintessential beach. Water was 82 degrees, a view to die for, sand, massages or water activities available, not very crowded and just pretty darn sweet.  more »
  • We have vacationed here for over 10 years, walking daily, stopping at various restaurants to enjoy breakfast lunch and dinner. Always safe and friendly, happy vendors that dont hassle you too much.  more »
