“Zihuatanejo Beach Retreat on the "King's Reef"”
Review of King's Reef

Reviewed 7 June 2012

The legendary "King's Reef" spans the entire face of Las Gatas Beach -- a quater mile long palm-lined crescent of golden sand that is accessible only by a one-mile boatride from the village pier in Zihuatanejo, Thanks to the reef, Las Gatas Beach is Zihuatanejo's most popular daytime excursion. On its seaward side, the reef offers snorkelers and SCUBA divers a natural aquarium that teems with beautiful fish. It also offers surfers one of the best point breaks in the tropical Pacific.

The leeward side of the reef offers a reef-protected swimming lagoon that is perfect for children and older people. Las Gatas Beach also boasts twelve of the best seafood restaurants in the entire bay, plus a dozen rustic, seaside bungalows called the Zihuatanejo Beach Retreat. The New York Times called it "a slice of pure Joseph Conrad." The Los Angeles Times said, "it's too good to last." The retreat is ideal for groups and family reunions up to twenty.
