There are more beaches in Mexico than you can possibly experience in one lifetime, but we suggest visiting one of these five playas.

Bahia Balandra

If you want a quiet escape from civilization, Bahia Balandra is located in the remote Baja California Sur, a semi-desert landscape filled with wildlife and flora and semi-virgin beaches. There’s almost no tourism here, so you can enjoy the white sand and turquoise waters all by yourself.

Stone Island

Mazatlan has a lot of beaches, but Stone Island is a great daytrip for people who want to get out of the city. A small panga will take 10 minutes to get you to the island, where you can enjoy some great seafood and beach activities like jet skiing, ATVs and parasailing. There are also plenty of less intense excursions like snorkeling and horseback riding.

Playa del Amor

Most people go to Mexico for the resort life, but tourists can take a break from the commercialism and hitch a boat to la Playa del Amor, a crescent-shaped beach home to the famous El Arco. Strong waves come in from the Pacific Ocean, so swimming should be done on the Sea of Cortez side.

Zipolite

A holdover from the 60s, Zipolite was famous as a counterculture destination for hippies with one of the few nude beaches in Mexico, though keep in mind today most people keep their clothes on. This is a great surf spot for people on a budget, but a number of upscale establishments are starting to pop up, drawing an international crowd.

Sayulita Beach

Sayulita is another “discovery” from the 60s, when American surfers traversing Mexican Highway 200 stumbled upon the small fishing village. Today, it is a thriving beach destination that retains its small-town feel, filled with cafes, guesthouses and musicians, in addition to indigenous Huichol Indians selling their bead painting in the town square.

Review: Norton Simon Museum

Pasadena, California, is home to plenty of places to experience great art, but none so impressive as Norton Simon Museum. Nestled in an enclave of greenery along the city's famed Colorado Boulevard, this museum offers a peaceful retreat from the bustle of the city outside for connoisseurs to experience the work of some of the world's most famous artists.
