We stopped here on a private tour to release baby turtles! It was a beautiful, quiet beach! Seemed like it went on for miles. It would be a great place to spend the day, have lunch or even a drink or 2! I highly recommend releasing the baby turtles. It doesn't sound like much but both me and the bf... More

Great food, not so many sellers and beatiful beach. Ask for pescado a la talla and quedadillas. Avoid sitting next to a track where horses and four wheel motorcycle cross, because they blow over a lot of sand

I love this beach because is almost alone and you can enjoy the sea without many people, the waves are really relaxing, the sand is very soft and the restaurants nearby have very good food. You can go to this place taking a bus from acapulco to punta diamante and then other to barra vieja.

If you love seafood this is the place to go. Freshest red snapper we have ever had made to order and prepared to your liking. Beach front family owned restaurant on the beach! Isolated beach with less of the tourist crowd.

A simple place to eat the best "pescado a la talla" located in front of a nice beach, but it is not for swimming, or even entering the sea if you are not an experienced swimmer, since it is an open sea beach.

Nice beach for a little surfing or just relaxing - my husband did the first and I of course did the latter. Not a lot people - a plus. Great seafood restaurants all around!

There are many restaurants to eat fresh fish and at the end of the road, just off the shore of "Gody restaurant" there are safe and affordable boats to sail in the "Laguna de Tres Palos"

Is a nice place to visit, quiet than Acapulco beach, but the waves are very strong, making the beach dangerous, a good point is you can find many traditional restaurants, where to taste "Pescado a la talla" very good a traditional plate from Acapulco. Be aware with the ATV, you can freely rent one in the beach, they are running... More
