Clean sand and fun waves to play in. No load music and no too many people. I was worried that the sea may be cold but no way. The sea was like a hot bath. Pure joy to relax and swim on this beach.

Beautiful walk down Playa Quieta beach. Nice little restaurant to stop for food / drinks on your way down. Make sure to go here at least one evening around 6:45 p.m. for the beautiful sunset.

This is a small beach bordering the property of Club Med. It is very quiet, very few vendors, and the water is usually calm. It is really lovely.

Beaches are shorter than some (e.g. Nyarit Vallarta) but are still very nice. Warm water with some sandy stretches ; can be rough at times but is swim able. Not really a snorkelling beach

Very nice beach. Water is calm unlike many other beaches in Ixtapa. Nice clean sand beach once you get away from the entrance from the street. Gradual drop off. I believe the beach is sheltered by Ixtapa Island which makes the waves not so high...More

Where is the best place to stay with a 4 year old and a 1 1/2 year old. They love the beach and water and we love quiet, clean and safe. Non touristy is also good. Any suggestions are very appreciated!! Thank you
