Sisters vacation

While visiting Nuevo Vallarta beach, we laid out in lawn chairs near a cafe. A server came around to take our food and drink orders. The fish tacos were so delicious.

Large waves but stirs up bottom so not so inviting. Kind of spoiled with Caribbean and swimming pools. Beach itself is clean, no rocks, pebbles or shells.

They do not have the white sands of the Gulf side but the weather was beautiful, there are chairs and umbrellas and we rented jet skis right at the beach which were a lot of fun and a great price!

North of PUERTA VALLARTA in a relatevily newly developed hotel section the beach is miles long, sandy and flat, which makes it easy to walk and swim. The waves very in size and intensity depending on the wind, however, they can be manageable because the water is shallow for a good distance. In the most of the hotel beaches it... More

We had a great time boogie boarding in the surf each day - the waves were perfect for boarding and body surfing.

Nice large clean sandy beach. Some beach vendors, even more beach shops you can walk to right on the beach. Surf and break with about 10 mph winds seemed great for belly board surfing. Rentals available. You can take long walks along nice resorts fronts. Nice views of the curved coastline and bay. Only missing some sheltered areas for more... More

The water in the Banderas Bay area is not as blue and beautiful as it is north or south outside of the Vallarta area. Sandy beaches are nice. Warning: Waves can have a deceiving undertow. Sunsets can be spectacular.

Greatest beach for endless walking! Always clean - they have turtle release program - always something when walking along. We've been going for 18 years

The water wasn't as turquoise as I expected and saw in photos. I'm a fan of long walks on the beach and this beach is perfect for that. I didn't find it to be very crowded considering all the resorts which is a plus in my book. I was approached by one vendor, but a simple "no thank you" was... More
