Playa Azul - Michoacan Beaches

Family vacation, adventure with friends or romantic getaway. Sunbathing, boating, surfing or diving. Do not expect large resorts, luxury hotels or marinas on the Michoacán coast. Be prepared, however, to discover pristine beaches, make contact with nature, discover the local culture and, of course, eat delicious food.

If you are with your family and would like some creature comforts, we recommend the beaches near Lázaro Cárdenas such as Playa Azul, a beautiful beach surrounded by palm trees where children's activities are organized during the Sea Turtle Festival, in October. In Barra de Pichi you can take boat trips to see the mangroves and look for crocodiles. Caleta de Campos is set in beautiful surroundings. Boat trips are available in Mexcalhuacán and Pichilinguillo, a small fishing village. This is an ideal place for diving enthusiasts.

On the coast between Maruata and Coahuayana, some of the beaches have cabins or palapas or ecotourism inns run by Nahua communities. Maruata Bay probably one of the most beautiful places on the coast, with rock formations, palm trees, jungle and a perfect estuary for spotting seabirds. Following the coast towards Colima, the sandy Bucerías Lighthous Beachs are legendary, and it is possible to go diving to see sunken wrecks. Other beaches include Peñitas, with black sand, La Manzanillera and La Ticla. San Juan de Alima is another resort in a lush natural environment. Fancy finding paradise on the Michoacan coast?

We recommend

  • Michoacán’s coast is a perfect surfing destination. The best beaches are Nexpa, La Ticla, San Juan de Alima and Playa Azul.
  • Indigenous ecotourism inns are available in Maruata, Colola, Faro de Bucerías, La Manzanillera, Palma Sola, La Ticla, Ixtapilla and Tizupán.
