Isla Ixtapa - Beach Ixtapa - Mexico

The beach at Isla Ixtapa is Ixapa’s version of Playa Las Gatas in Zihuatanejo. It is very popular and filled with restaurants, beach chairs, umbrellas and families having a good time. Because it faces the bay and not the Pacific, the waves are almost nonexistent making snorkeling a primary activity. Shops for obtaining snorkeling gear are plentiful. To get here, take a water taxi from the pier by Playa Linda for about $3.50.
