Absolutely an amazing place, a view comparable to Copacabana and other top beaches. Worth seeing during the day day and at the sunset. One remark - better to book taxi and make it come to pick you up than look for it at the beach.

The best location, banks, bars, kids entertainment, restaurants & stores, all can be done walking around. The gold sand, warm clean calm beach is beautiful. Almost all days summer time in this place. To rest, for fun or romance is a great choice.

The beach (as all the Acapulco bay) is dirty and the swimming is not nice because of the sea-bottom. It used to be the "last corner" of the bay so it was a nice spot even if the NAval base is near to it, but now it is not a pleasant experience anymore.

beautiful to look at, but Acapulco is a very dangerous place, stay on main streets, no jewelry, minimum of cash, walk the beach if possible, careful @ night

Very nice and quiet beach next to the militar base. But you need to go there by sea in a boat. The water is nice for swimming and not to much people. Rent a boat and go there for a nice beach day. Good sand and almost no waves.

Took my family and a few friends behind the old cici water park to rent a few flat boards. Basically a wider surf board with paddle you stand on and row yourself around the bay. IMO the price was right from the word go i asked is it for 30 min he said 1 hour 20 dollars and i said... More
