Sayulita Beaches

What’s Sayulita without its unique offering of beaches? Sayulita provides access to over two miles of unspoiled coastline:

  • Playa de Los Muertos – This is a clean and well-maintained swimming beach protected by huge rock outcroppings on both sides so that the incoming waves are much smaller. The swimming area is roped off from the rest of the beach so swimmers don’t have to keep an eye out for fishing boats. To the south of Playa de Los Muertos, just past the rocks, you’ll find Las Cargadas, another small beach.

  • Playa Carricitos – This wind-swept beach has huge waves that are perfect for bodysurfing in addition to private residences perched on top the wooded hills overlooking the Pacific. Playa Carricitos is recommended for experienced surfers and swimmers who can handle the bigger, stronger waves that pummel the coastline.

  • Playas Patzcuaro and Patzcuarito – These remote beaches are less crowded and offer breathtaking scenery in a more isolated area of town.

PLAYA MALPASO IS A VIRTUALLY DESERTED STRETCH OF PARADISE WITHIN A SHORT HIKE OF SAYULITA’S NORTH SIDE

  • Playas Las Cuevas and Playa Malpaso – Located north of Sayulita, these beaches have stunning white sand and clear waters surrounded by rocky cliffs accessible via a path through the jungle. Swimming is not recommended because of the strong undertow and powerful tide that can carry you further out into the sea.
