Playa Hermosa


Puerto Peñasco's main town beach, Playa Hermosa is an inviting swath of tawny sand with small waves and views of the rocky landscape in the distance. Vendors hawk everything from mangoes to jewelry, and beach shade, including chairs, can be had for around M$300 per day. You can arrange all manner of aquatic activities here, including hiring SUP boards and kayaks.
