Acapulco is famous for its beaches, besides its nightlife. Be sure to carry your sunscreen on your visit to the Acapulco beaches!
Some of the most famous Acapulco Beaches are:
Caleta Beach: In earlier days this was the most popular beach in Acapulco. Caleta beach is located in the “old” part of the city. It’s a popular beach for families with kids because the sea is somewhat calmer then in other areas.
Condesa Beach: In the center of Acapulco Bay, Condesa beach is a popular beach for locals and tourists.
Icacos Beach: In front of La Palapa Hotel, Playa Icacos is a favorite beach also. There are a lot of things to do for vacationers and spring breakers. You can go Parasailing and do all kinds of watersports.
Puerto Marques: The favorite beach of many Mexican tourists. Puerto Marques is located on the way to the airport. The sea is fairly calm at Puerto Marques beach. It’s a good beach for swimming and relaxing in the sun.
Pie de la Cuesta: A beautiful Acapulco beach to watch the sunset. Waves can be high at Pie de la Cuesta, so swimming might not always be a good idea. Go and have dinner at the very good seafood restaurants, visit the lagoon and go waterskiing!
Revolcadero Beach: In front of the Princess Hotel close to the airport. Playa Revolcadero is a relatively private, beautiful Acapulco beach. If you don’t stay at Princess, it might be a long trip by bus. It’s worth while though, you can relax here, Revolcadero beach is a more exlusive Mexico beach.
La Bonfil: One of the best beaches for surfing. La Bonfil is also good for a swim, although the waves might be rather high. La Bonfil is located between Revolcadero Beach and Puerto Marques, so it will take you some time to get to La Bonfil. There are not that many vendors at La Bonfil, it’s a quite peaceful beach usually.
Hornos Beach: Nearer to the town itself. The waves are calmer than most other Acapulco beaches.
