The Riviera Nayarit on the Pacific Coast of Mexico is situated north of Puerto Vallarta and
Banderas Bay where the resort lies. Beginning at Punta Mita with its flagship hotel, Four
Seasons, the Riviera continues along the coastline through the small, popular town of
Sayulita and several small fishing villages and eventually ends at the wonderful nature
reserve town of San Blas. In the area of Punta Mita several top-class de-luxe hotels are
planned and Sayulita has become a great attraction because of its typical Mexican feel and
the surfing possibilities which are some of the best in Mexico.
Well known as one of the most beautiful beaches in Riviera Nayarit, Sayulita has become a popular destination for those seeking a unique experience on their Mexico vacation. The beach in front of this small surf town is located on a cove that provides picturesque views in every direction. Because it is located just north of the Bay of Banderas, on the coast of the Pacific Ocean, Sayulita is a great place for those who wish to take up surfing on their trip to Mexico. As you walk down the often crowded stretch of sand, you’ll find countless companies renting paddle boards, surf boards, and more. You can even take lessons from those who surf with the pros. While the beach is beautiful in Sayulita, the town is equally as impressive. If you have time, visit the boutique shops, delight in delicious cuisine, and revel in the unique charm of the town.
At the very tip of Banderas Bay sits one of the most beautiful beaches in Riviera Nayarit. Punta Mita is a small town with luxuriant charm where visitors can relax in style and dine in elegance. Here you can sit at one of the oceanside restaurants, which vary from laid- back eateries to high-end fine dining, while sipping a margarita and enjoying the cool ocean breeze. At Punta Mita surfing is possible, or you can swim in the crystalline waters, or simply take in the beauty that surrounds you. While this isn’t the best of Riviera Nayarit beaches for taking long strolls along the sand, it is one of the most naturally beautiful.
NUEVO VALLARTA BEACH
One of the cleanest beaches in Riviera Nayarit, the beach at Nuevo Vallarta is a must on your Mexico vacation. With endless stretches of soft sand, shallow waters for playing in, and easy access from your Nuevo Vallarta hotel, this is by far one of the best beaches in Riviera Nayarit. Because the beach seems to go on for miles, it isn’t as crowded as other beaches in the region. In addition, due to its location on the shores of Banderas Bay, the waves are much more gentle than at other points in Riviera Nayarit, making it a great place for younger travelers to get their fill of swimming in the ocean. At most points along this beach the water is shallow for a good distance, so you and your loved ones can rest at ease as you all splash around in the water and explore.
