BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • To get here, take a water taxi from the Playa Sur embarcadero. Fare runs US$2 round-trip.
  • Seek shade on a hike in the tropical hills behind the beach, but watch for dangerous snakes and reptiles.
  • Beachcombers can collect shells along this mostly empty beach, which fills with dancers and musicians Sunday afternoons.
As you approach the unpaved streets and farm animals roaming free, it becomes clear that Isla de la Piedra's locals still believe in the rural, laid-back lifestyle that used to characterize most of Mazatlan.
