Resort Summary

There are miles of beaches to explore in Punta de Mita, but many are only accessible via boat. You shouldn’t let this put you off, as there are countless boat hire companies ready to take you to your chosen stretch of sand and, once there, you are less likely to feel overcrowded.

Some of the shores can be explored via car, but public transport is limited, so a hire car could help keep you more mobile. El Anclote is widely thought to be one of the nicest stretches of sand, with a family-friendly vibe, handy beach bar and a pretty approach that twists down through mango groves.​
