Some 30 km (19 miles) north of Rincón de Guayabitos, Chacala is another 9 km (5 miles) from the highway through exuberant vegetation. You can dine or drink at the handful of eateries right on the beach, take in the soft-scented sea air and the green-blue sea, or bodysurf and boogie board. Swimming is safest under the protective headland to the north of the cove; surfing is often very good, but you have to hire a boat to access the point break. The beach is long but rather narrow when the tide is in. Facilities: Food concessions. Best for: surfing; swimming.
