Fodor's Review

Thatch-roof restaurants dispense beer, soda, and the catch of the day just north of the Qualton Inn, in the Zona Hotelera II. Mexican families favor this long, coconut-palm-lined beach, which has marvelous views. It's perfect for walking and is bordered at one end by an estuary with birds, iguanas, and gators. A warren of identical stalls sells souvenirs and cheap plastic beach toys, and concessions arrange banana-boat rides and rent Jet Skis and Boogie boards. Water taxis depart here for Isla Ixtapa, and land taxis wait in the free parking lot for fares. Amenities: food and drink; parking (no fee); water sports. Best for: walking; sunset; surfing.
