The waves were amazing to watch and listen to, however, the undertow was dangerous. We swam a bit but really just enjoyed our daily walks on this lovely and clean beach. There are a lot of hotels along the length of it and many locals...More

Nice sandy 2.5km beach but beware of the waves.They can be fun to body surf but don't turn your back they can be big. Seen whales 4 of the seven days on this beach. Very few vendors.

As Canadians, in the winter, we look to the south for a hot, sunny and a beautiful beach spot. Ixtapa and El Palmar beach is IT!!! It’s so calm. The weather is perfection. The ocean is a bit rough at times but otherwise very warm....More
