Except for the fact that this is a public beach so everyone has access if your hotel or apartment rental is not on a beach, I wouldn't bother. Did not find anything "linda" about this beach which means "pretty" in Spanish. Parking is free which...More

Playa linda is the best place to visit if you are in Ixtapa. You will find fine sand, you can go swimming nice and the children can enjoy the waves.

We stayed at Club Med. Best guess is 1.5 miles onthe road. Cannot walk on beach all the way. Cheap cab ride too like $5 USA. But frankly, we didn’t find anything appealing about this beach. Club Med’s beach is way nicer!
