Big beach with moderate waves. After you pass the restaurants it is wide open for meandering. Entrance to the beach is at the bus stop and tourist market.

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?
