The beach is a great place to relax, get wet and enjoy the ambiance. The shrimp skewers and mango with chili powder is delicious! Walk north along the beach and you will find shops and cafes. We stopped at La Palapa for a beer. We ordered guacamole and rellenos de fresco. Incredible food and great service!

Manzanillo is the prime example of some of the planets evolution, so much Fools Gold in the sand means there were major changes in the ocean and Manzanillo is evidence of it. Most of the beach in Manzanillo has a Muddy feel with huge amounts of black sand and Fools Gold. Sort of annoying because it sticks and its hard... More

This is a gorgeous beach with white sand. If you look in either direction you will see no development whatsoever just mountains and palm trees. However I would not recommend swimming here the ways are very big in the current is dangerous. It is also quite isolated
