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!
This island, which is more like a small islet, can be explored by walking from one end to the other. There’s plenty to see on the island like the rock formations and spectacular views.
La Ropa Beach
This wonderful bay has recently been awarded as one of the best and most romantic beaches to visit in Mexico by the world's largest travel platform, TripAdvisor.
Located within the same bay of Playa Blanca is Playa Larga. This can sometimes cause confusion; although it is a single beach, it is divided into two sections. Together it covers more than 19 km of coastline.
