Playa Las Gatas, Zihuatanejo
Categories: Beaches, Nature & Parks, Outdoor Activities
Swim and sunbathe at Playa Las Gatas, a Zihuatanejo Bay beach named “cat beach” after the whiskered nurse sharks that once inhabited the area. According to a local legend, the beach was built by a Tarascan king for his daughter, which is why the chiseled cliffs that surround the beach create a natural barrier against the current, keeping the water calm. Lounge on the soft sand, or rent snorkeling gear to explore the nooks and crannies under the water. Once you're done, enjoy a meal at one of the beachside restaurants, which serve freshly caught seafood.

I recommend restaurant Oliverio, very affordable prices, food and snacks are very rich and generous portions, friendly service. The beach is very quiet almost without waves, ideal for bathing in family. Crystal clear water ideal for snorkeling.show original
