Fodor's Review

A few miles north of Piedra Blanca headland is a wide, 1½-km-long (1-mi-long) beach with powder-soft beige sand and sometimes good waves for bodysurfers and boogie boarders. It's a pretty scene with the blue mountains to the north and south and the area's ubiquitous coconut palms framing views of the sky. On weekends and holidays, vendors prepare and sell yummy barbecue-blackened shrimp and fish kebabs, fresh fruit, and ceviche. Part of a new development called Nahui,

Hotel Capella is under construction above the beach and, at this writing, was scheduled to open in 2011; a golf course was also in the planning stages. At the north end of the beach, Punta el Burro is a popular surf spot often accessed by boat from Punta Mita. Facilities: Food concessions, parking.
