Best beach to hang out on south of town?

I know that there are lots of nice beaches south of town.

These are our criteria:


Not rocky

Easy to get to on the bus

Restaurant with loungers and bathroom facilities

mismaloya and by bus and watertaxi--las animas, quimixto, yelapa.

there are other beaches on the southside---however no loungers or bathroom facilities(punta negra, playa gemelas)

you also may like the beach at lindo mar--it is rocky but there are areas to get in--a unique washing machine like feeling. eat breaky at la playita and then use the facilities and the beach.

You would need to get a day pass for everything you want at Garza Blanca Resort - $50USD with some of that going toward food/drink - very much worth it IMO - caribbean-like water & sand -

Another vote for Mismaloya if you want local color too. It's been our "go to" beach every trip for years. Tony from Ramada Coral sees us coming and knows what we want. Everybody has their favorite place there and favorite staff. Often somebody will meet you on the path to the beach to get you to convince you to go to their restaurant, which is how we met Tony.

It's hard to describe what is different about Mismaloya beach as compared to Los Muertos....other than it's quainter. And, Night of the Iguana was filmed there and you can walk along the path on the shore to part of the old set which you can see through the fence.

Depending on where you go there....you will have rustic but clean bathrooms.
