Great local beach, with mostly locals. Souvenir shopping with covered walkway. My daughter went parasailing! (about 25$ CAD) and then went on a banana boat tour of the bay. Great place to catch the water taxi to Ixtapa Island.

Not impressed with Playa Linda. It was packed with tour buses and nothing special. The market wasn't selling anything special, just the usual tourists stuff. Opted to return to hotel beach.

We have a property in Pantla just a couple of miles inland from playa linda Blvd. is a great place and playa quieta is also close by, the restaurants in playa linda are good the ones close to the dock are much cheaper and very fresh fish. All around playa linda beach and town is agreat place and the ocean well you all have made a great description of it.

Hola! estaremos hospedados a 2 cuadras de la playa Madera. Según entendí, para ir a la isla Ixtapa hay que tomar una lancha en Playa Linda. Alguien sabe cómo llegar y si es muy lejos?
