Beach sights in Ixtapa
- Sort by:
Playa del Palmar is all about big hotels and a lovely long stretch of white-sand beach that's teeming with parasail and jet-ski outfits. Be very careful if you swim here: the large waves crash straight down and there's a powerful undertow. The west end of this beach, just before the entrance to the lagoon, is locally called Playa Escolleras and is favored by surfers.
The broad expanse of Playa La Ropa, bordered by palm trees and seafood restaurants, is one of Zihuatanejo's most beautiful beaches and great for swimming, parasailing, waterskiing and sand-soccer. You can also rent sailboards and sailboats.
