Playa Principal / Playa Municipal - Beach Zihuatanejo - Mexico

This beach is the main beach right in front of the downtown area, and it is referred to by either Playa Principal or Playa Municipal. Though not a swimming beach, a few locals will take their kids there to get wet. It is lined with restaurants and shopping and is right next to the pier where water taxis take passengers to Playa Las Gatas. Many boats anchor just off the shore, contributing to the nice view of the bay.
