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. Here the waves are perfect for bodysurfing or just splashing around (although it is one of the smaller beaches). At Madera Beach you will also find several hotels, restaurants and bars built along the beach, which are perfect for enjoying breakfast or watching a sunset overlooking the sea. The name of this beach comes from an interesting anecdote. Like many of Zihutanejo’s beaches, the names originated during the Colonial period. La Madera, or “wood beach”, was named after the oak, pine and mahogany that was exported from the shipyard’s of Zihuatanejo.
