Playa Principal

Also known as the fishermen's beach, this beach lies in the heart of Zihuatanejo. If you’re looking to take boat tours around the bay, catch a ride to Las Gatas, embark on a fishing excursion or rendezvous from a cruise ship, you will be docking on and off at the docks by this beach. You’ll understand why this is an iconic beach if you take a visit here at dawn. At first light you’ll see fishermen returning back from sea with their catch of the day. Don’t just watch them though! For all seafood lovers, this is your time. Get in the action and barter for fresh seafood. There’s an assortment to choose from depending on the season, but you will normally find red snapper, horse mackerel, chula, parrot fish, marlin, sailfish, tuna, mahi mahi, lobsters, barnacles and more!
