Fodor's See It Mexico, 3rd Edition
Playa la Audiencia
Playa la Audiencia Review
On the west side of the Península de Santiago, below the Gran Costa Real Resort & Spa and between two rock outcroppings, Playa la Audiencia is small but inviting, with calm water (though be on the lookout for riptides and a steep drop-off) and shade umbrellas for hotel guests and those who order drinks or snacks. Deportes Aquáticos el Pacifico rents Boogie boards, kayaks, and Jet Skis, and has equipment for waterskiing, snorkeling, and diving. Although many of Manzanillo's waters do not have good visibility, this is a good spot for snorkeling, and with its shallow depth and slow current it has several good dive spots as well. The cove got its name because local Indians supposedly granted Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés an audience here. It can get extremely crowded on weekends and holidays.
