Playa Norte 

It’s the most popular in the county! This beach is the favorite of Mazatlecos and tourists because its waters are one of the calmest, so children can play and enjoy it without a problem. The best thing is that it is in front of the boardwalk, which makes it the most central beach of all. But that’s not all your view of the three islands is spectacular.  

Playa Camarón 

This beach belongs to the Golden Zone, it is located in the middle of beautiful hotels with a spectacular view, but so that you can better identify it, the beach begins just after what was the “Sumbawa” nightclub. Its waters are very calm so you can swim without problems.
