Fodor's Review

On the west side of the Península de Santiago, 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—the Tesoro Manzanillo sits here—and those who order drinks or snacks. Pacifico Water Sports 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 when indigenous people granted Spanish conquistadors an audience here. It can get extremely crowded on weekends and holidays. Amenities: food and drink; parking; toilets; water sports. Best for: snorkeling; sunset; swimming; walking.
