This beach is stunning and one can get there only by hiking or a boat taxi. We did the hike that took us 25 minutes through the jungle type flora. Wear sturdy shoes as there are many roots poking through the dirt. Once we arrived at the beach there were only 2 people there, however, boats were passing through just to have a look at the gorgeous beach. We put our blanket out and took turns snorkeling by the rocks. The fish were very colorful and there were plenty of them. We relaxed for a while and then hiked back to Boca de Tomatlan.

We took the bus from Zona Romantica to Boca (fun ride!) starting at about 8:00 AM.
Wanted to get an early start as we intended to hike to Playa Colomitos and it can get pretty warm in the afternoon.
The hike over is a blast (bring water and good shoes)...and the beach (when it isn't crowded) is very nice.
Enjoyed the water for about an hour and then hiked back...as we couldnt seem to flag down a water taxi.
Had lunch in Boca on the beach.
Great time and highly recommend.

Beautiful secluded beach,…but too busy.

We moved to Vallarta three months ago.

We did the hike to Playa Colomito’s and enjoyed the experience. It was a bit more of a hike than we bargained for. I recently had spinal surgery,…but I would say it is above beginner but below moderate +.

Once we arrived, we were surprised to see there was no beach left to sit down and enjoy. It was packed.

It is a very small beach area. Mostly large rocks.

There were three yachts anchored and soon after our arrival a tour catamaran arrived with approximately 60 or more people who ‘jumped ship’ for the small beach.

It was literally standing room only even before that boat arrived.

Disappointed,…we only stayed about 40 minutes, ate our lunch we packed and caught the water taxi back to Boca.

We crossed it off our bucket list,…but it was not the day trip we had in mind.

Beautiful,….but too busy to enjoy it

We did the hike here which was harder than we thought it would be....but worth it! Unfortunately there were a few large tour boats there so the small beach was very crowded. But the colour of the water here is emerald green and so clean.

One can hike in or boat in; we hiked in, spent time on the spectacular hidden beach with a few others who either walked or boated in. There were a couple of rustic venders there with some food/drinks treats. Unique water as the edge of the bay is a mixture of fresh water entering from a steam into the salty water...feel/smells different! Protected little cove good for relaxing and swimming. If you want to add a fancy supper, plan ahead and make a reservation at Ocean Grill Restaurant which like some kind of oasis in the middle of no where serving gourmet grilled dinners with full bar, spectacular view, and a boat ride back if you request...you MAY have to pay something for the boat ride (50 pesos a person) but we managed to hop on for free...got lucky. Cash only there.

We did a 45 minute hike from boca to this tiny beach, and it was really not worth it. It’s a pretty beach but since it’s so small, it gets packed easily. I’d rather take a taxi to sayulita, which has more visitors but the beach area is huge and doesn’t get cramped!

This was my favorite beach during my trip to Puerto Vallarta. Water was very clear. We took a 45-minute bus ride to Boca de Tomatlan from downtown and hiked to Colomitos for another 30-40 minutes. If you like seafood, Boca de Tomatlan is the best spot for cheap and fresh meals! Most visitors took water taxis from Boca de Tomatlan to the beach, but if you're into fitness, the hike to Colomitos was a great activity.

Nice and easy 45 minute hike from Boca or you can paddle over in about 20 minutes. Also, lots of water taxis can take you there.

I was so looking forward to doing this hike and discovering this “hidden beach” but along the hike we encountered quite a few people and is not a hidden gem any longer. The hundreds of visitors are not taking care of the place and it’s getting a bit trashed. Place take care our planet nonetheless is still beautiful and if you continue down the trail there are so many beaches that will take your breath away. If you chose to do the hike please remember that it is a bit challenging and wear the proper gear- Happy travels

Beautiful hike leaving from a pretty little town. Trail follows the coast south and goes through little pueblos, continuing on to a very remote beach. We continued past to the towns of Las Animas and Quimixto, which was a gorgeous hike, but the towns are not as remote and beautiful as going to Colomitos. Still well worth the hike though. I would estimate it's about a 45-minute hike to Colomitos and another two to three hours to Quimixto. Be sure to wear good footwear because the trail can get pretty rocky and arduous. Also, if you want to continue on past Colomitos, the trail hugs the ocean. We made the mistake of heading upland following the stream, which was pretty and got us into some deep jungle, but was very steep and eventually started to loop around back to where we started, so just make sure you stay close to the coast. Definitely not a hike to be missed. You'll love it!
