We go there at least once every winter. My husband loves to surf the waves. The restaurants see you coming and their fast food is expensive but that is the way for them to make money.

We went there on a Saturday not knowing that locals also enjoy a day at the beach! Was full in a matter of minutes. We had to pay for chairs and a palapa. Was an interesting experience. Never went back on the weekend.

We went to Playa Revolcdero for the day. It is so different from the other side of Acapulco( Las Brisas). The waves are amazing and as far you can see it is just this amazing strip of beach and waves. Lovely.

If you want a long stroll on the beach this is a great starting point. I think you can walk at least 10 k without interruption along here. Maybe more. I will wear my meter next time to let you know.

The sand and beach is great, the undertow quite dangerous, you must take care. No place to park your car. Beach vendors again as in all Acapulco trying to sell you something all the time.
