Zihuatanejo Bay, Zihuatanejo

(4.6/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Beach hop between the five popular beaches within Zihuatanejo Bay, where you'll find a piece of shoreline to suit every beach-loving traveler. A long white sand beach, Playa La Ropa is popular for swimming. Those who are interested in snorkeling around reefs should head to Playa Las Gatas. Playa Contramar has polished rocks instead of sand and offers snorkeling around rock formations. Playa La Madera makes for good body surfing, and it provides a nice place to spend an evening on the walkway among performers and restaurants. The final beach, Playa Principal, makes up the waterfront town and is more urban, not suitable for swimming.

  • My pick after visiting many Mexican beach cities. Not exactly a swinging city for millenials. More sedate. Very honest people happy to see and serve tourists. A nice condo is $150K. A killer condo wit...  more »
  • ... and a sea of dreams. Clean, warm with few people. If you want you can go to Xtapa which is vice versa full of hotels and tourists. Enchanted by the blue sea and the green of the vegetation and the beauty of the creeks. Just hop on some rough edges and the show is impressive. The Sun, like in the moonlight. Not to mention the sun setting over the sea!
