Perfect beach if you value privacy and being secluded. Other great attributes of Playa Blanca include super soft sand, ocean waters you can safely swim in and a beachfront that is clean. I just enjoyed 5 days on this beach with not one person trying to sell me random things.

I've visited here for 15 years and visit for 3 or more months a year. Peaceful, serene, and beautiful. I have an unobstructed view of the beach and ocean. Great whale and dolphin watching.

We visited in May-June so off season and the beach is fairly empty. We recommend King Fish Restaurant's coconut shrimp. The best we've tried anywhere and clearly surpasses a similar well known dish in another Zihua restaurant! Can't wait to eat them again!

Went for one day to Barra de Potosi and walked along the beach. We were the only people on it! Absolutely incredible! Sand looks like it is sprinkled with gold! Nice that it is an untouched beach.

Private and serene while still only being minutes from town. A rental car is a must. The staff was amazing, friendly, and helpful.

If you have a car, bring a cooler and some lunch and get here. This was a lovely place. The hotel Las Palmas is a good spot to get lunch if you didn't bring your own. There is just miles of beautiful white sand and peaceful beach.

Must go to Las Palmas Hotel Beach Club, great service and location. They have access to a private fresh water lagoon for kayaking.
