The most popular swimming beach in Puerto Angel proper, the brown-sand Playa Panteón has calm, waveless water which makes it popular among day-trippers and Mexican families on weekends and holidays. Watch for fishing and tour boats when you're in the water. Persistent vendors can also be an issue. A walkway past the oceanfront panteón (cemetery) links it with Playa Principal, Puerto Angel's busy main beach and working harbor. Amenities: food and drink;
water sports. Best for: swimming.
