Outstanding and very secluded.

We stayed at Las Palmas Beachfront VIllas on Playa Blanca and we loved it. Beach in either way for MILES!

Great sand. Rough water. Very few beach bars along its length. Lagoon at south end has all the restaurants and bars.

This is a 9 mile stretch of beautiful beach with very limited development thus far. You can walk for miles without seeing anyone. The sea is beautiful but quite rough as it is such a long open beach. Incredible sunsets. There isn't a huge amount of activity, so mainly for relaxation.

Perfect beach if you value privacy and being secluded. Other great attributes of Playa Blanca include super soft sand, ocean waters you can safely swim in and a beachfront that is clean. I just enjoyed 5 days on this beach with not one person trying to sell me random things.

I've visited here for 15 years and visit for 3 or more months a year. Peaceful, serene, and beautiful. I have an unobstructed view of the beach and ocean. Great whale and dolphin watching.

We visited in May-June so off season and the beach is fairly empty. We recommend King Fish Restaurant's coconut shrimp. The best we've tried anywhere and clearly surpasses a similar well known dish in another Zihua restaurant! Can't wait to eat them again!
