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. Playa Larga receives more open sea waves, so it is dangerous to swim here, but being a semi-virgin beach, makes it perfect for long romantic walks or some gentle horseback riding. Here you can enjoy some spectacular views away from all the commotion of downtown. Like all of our beaches here, catching a sunset here is a must, but even more special since it is less crowded. It is 10 minutes from the airport of Ixtapa Zihuatanejo and 25 from the hotel zone.
Las Gatas Beach
Las Gatas is named after the harmless whiskered nurse sharks that once inhabited this area but have since disappeared. Those who enjoy free diving or snorkeling.
La Madera Beach
It is connected from the main beach through the sea walker and is the perfect activity if you’re looking to go on a nice stroll, while enjoying the fresh ocean breeze and magnificent bay of Zihuatanejo.
This beach is known for surfing, especially for longboarders. With its very long-walled left handers, you can slide for more than 500mts on a good day.
