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, it does not allow the passage of large waves. It is ideal for swimming, kayaking, sailing and spending a nice day with the family. It is located 9.7 km from the center of Ixtapa, at the end of the second stage of the hotel zone. You can get there by car or bicycle, as the bicycle path passes by.
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.
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.
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.
