After the sun started to lose a little heat we decided it was a short walk from La Madera Beach to La Ropa Beach. It was worth the walk even if I felt it was mostly up hill. HA... it was beautiful and I really think the beer could be better there. The sunset was pretty and it would even... More

Eat breakfast at a beach side restaurant & you have the use of lounge chairs for the day. Take a walk down the beach & compare prices for parasailing - magnificent view & not scary at all.

Compare to Ixtapa, this beach is quiet and the waves are smoother (still strong). Remember that it is a public beach and on holidays can be crowded. It is also the Pacific ocean=not that warm, but you get used to.

This is a beautiful beach in the deep bay of Zihauatanejo. There are many restaurants to eat at and calm water for swimming. It can be crowded and dirty on major holidays but is a wonderful place to relax otherwise. During the winter when the sun sets over the water, the sunsets are beautiful and may have a green flash.

You can expect a ton of locals out here, but they are typically just soaking up the sun like the rest of us. The vendors aren't nearly as bad as your typical touristy spots like Cancun or Cabo, either. Waves were choppier than I expected considering it's lind of "coved in", but still swimable and open to various water activities... More

Probably one of my favourite beaches of all time. This beach is clean, soft sand, and the water is very nice.

Love this beach!!! About a 20 minute walk from Playa Madera. Lots of space and comfy sunning options. Vendors and food all around. I highly recommend this beach for family, couples and friends. I will certainly return.

Great beach. Sandy, not that rocky. Shallow for about 25 yards out. Lots of food and drink options available. Great walk around the bay as well.
