Zihuatanejo Bay, Zihuatanejo
(4.7/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • It is a must to visit in Zihuatanejo, a tour to meet the bays and its attractions including the Christ under the water, you can go fishing, snorkeling, sailing, riding a bike or simply stroll. Surrounded by restaurants, bars, crafts, etc and the Centre where games of basketball, dances and various events are held.
