The beautiful Pacific Ocean is open at this particular beach strip. For us typically the morning had a few small waves with a calm background by lunch time the waves grew larger & stronger. There is no lifeguard & we were told by security that you should not venture too far out as the current can be deadly. I do agree. We are all strong swimmers. There were many body/boogie board surfers. They were having a blast. So were we. The beach is clean. The ocean is clean. You can walk for miles. We felt safe. You can rent those sun canopy’s with chairs for approximately $15 per hut for the day. Otherwise your resort has chairs that belong to them although it’s much closer to the resort rather than the ocean. Wear shoes to walk on the sand as it gets VERY HOT.
Enjoy. We did.

This beach is incredible clean ... you even can see little fish very near the shore. If you stay near the parking lot is crowded but walking a few meters toward the princess hotel you can find some shades to rent that give you the required comfort. There are boards to rent and you can walk a lot on the beach with the water on your knee. Good and enjoyable family fun.

We were not exactly in this part of the beach but closer to the Quinta Real area, it was beautiful and quiet. Rented boogie boards for a little surfing.
We did not eat at the places there, enjoyed the beach.

Went there on a Saturday. The population in the city proper swells on weekends so it is nice to get away from that. The beach is very nice we go to the same guy Roberto. Treats us right. Just a few vendors. Be careful in the water as the rip currents can be fatal

Playa Revolcadero is a nice sized warm beach with a local flare! There are vendors with little huts right on the beach selling seashells, food, and souveniers of all sorts. The waves are sometimes choppy but when it's calm you can totally go in the water and ejoy a nice day in the sun! There are many beautiful hotels along the strip and you can just walk and admire the bustling hotels and beach clubs. Loved my time in the water here!

This beach is great for an afternoon of body boarding and pina coladas. However, check all prices before committing. We ended up paying 300 pesos for a sun shade even though we also paid for food and drink. We rented body boards for 100 pesos each and ate the most expensive French fries ever. We had 2 orders of quesadillas, 3 French fried and 5 drinks and paid over 1000 pesos. The previous day we ate 5?full meals including prawns and steak for a similar price in puerto Marquez. The day out on the beach was lively but we felt a bit put out paying 100 dollars for a few fries and sitting down. The best value was a great 45 minute massage for 250 pesos!

Fine dark sand and a constant surf so,,,,,, a good beach to walk but not for swimming unless you are a surf jumper.... LOL
The beach must be 4 - 5 miles long with hotel and local stops along the way to get a refreshment or some local sales people will try to sell you some product made in India, Hong Kong or Pakistan!!!
The dry sand in the afternoon gets too hot to walk on for this Tenderfoot, so you might want to be careful...
Enjoy..

Although the sand is not very clean and the sea is a little brave in this zone, you can enjoy a good day.
I consider for swiming is not a place for kids, only if you have continuous supervision on them, however you can find several activities: ride a horse, beach sports, palapas, etc.

Of course I don't recommend to visit on holidays because is completely full and you can't enjoy.

We go there at least once every winter. My husband loves to surf the waves. The restaurants see you coming and their fast food is expensive but that is the way for them to make money.

We went there on a Saturday not knowing that locals also enjoy a day at the beach! Was full in a matter of minutes. We had to pay for chairs and a palapa. Was an interesting experience. Never went back on the weekend.
