You have to arrive by boat or walk threw a long tricky path in order to get to this small beach. It is rocky, if you have seen all the other beaches in Zihua it is worth your while to check this one out.

We had very nice snorkeling by ourselves on this rocky beach. We saw two octopus, many moray eels, several buffer fish, and a small school of juvenile African pompanos.

It is a bit of a hassle to find and the boats in the dock charges way too much. It is a nice 45 minute walk from town center.

Cross the bridge from the dock, take to the left and walk to some old gas station. From the gas station there are some steep stairs. Walk them and when you reach the next road take to the left again. Follow the road and next to Monte Christo hotel gate is the entrance. A path, 10 minutes or so, down to the beach. If you don't find the entrance you can ask the guys at a nice fish restaurant called Leo. The restaurant had very good food by the way.
