Fodor's Review

A classic in the region's beach scene and favorite of locals, this beach stretches a few miles north of Piedra Blanca headland. It's a wide, 1½-km-long (1-mile-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. A new development called Nahui was built above the beach and it brought with it better facilities for the beach. 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, bathrooms, trash bins, parking. Best for: surfing; swimming; sunset.
