BEACHES

Beaches on Santiago Bay

-La Boquita: It is the proper one to enjoy the sea pleasantly due to its gentle surf and little gradient. Its golden sand lures beachgoers to take delicious sunbathes, while aquatic sports such as water skiing, jet skiing, scuba diving and snorkelling are practiced in its fun waters.
This Beach is roughly one kilometre long and it is located in the westernmost part of Santiago Bay. It is flanked by a hill, determining a non-swimming area due to the existence of rocks in the area.

-Miramar: A gentle gradient, fine coffee coloured sand, and serene sea currents are the characteristics of this Beach, one of the most attended in Manzanillo. Its tourist infrastructure is diverse and attractive. It has hotels, restaurants, gear rentals for aquatic sports (scuba diving and jet skiing, amongst others) and handicrafts galleries in which you will find works made out of palm trees and Carey. Hulls of ancient Spanish galleons rest on its sea bottom, turning Miramar into one of the beaches of choice for scuba divers.

-Olas Altas: Its name (High Waves) makes reference to the strong surf that is present from July to October. The breakings of the sea are moderate during the rest of the year, although it is advisable to swim with precaution due to its depth and steepness.
Here you will find good lodgings, condos, villas and bungalows, unmatchable options to come to terms with the sea and the sun.
