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.
Enjoy barefoot bliss here. Dig your feet in the sand, find rest in the shade between two palms or just sit back and relax with a cold drink here from the comforts of your luxury chalet or cozy summer house.
This beach is not very long (300mts) and as its name says, is a very quiet beach. It sits just in front of Ixtapa Island and because of this natural barrier.
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.
