Great place to relax and swim under the sun. Palapa are available. You can order drinks or food or walk a few steps to a number of great restaurants. Spent several days there.

this is a beautiful beach which offers snorkeling, some waves, and leisurely swimming. For $300 pesos you can hire 2 chairs under the shade which are sued towards consumption

Great bay for boogie boarding. Save some $ and rent boards on the beach by the hour. A few beach side restaurants near by for beer & lunch too.

Nice family oriented beach without the bars that line Zicatela blaring music. Quiet, but you can still rent a chair and umbrella and get a beer. The locals all show up after work with picnics for a pre dinner swim. Very nice beach.
