Sayulita's Main Beach is where it all happens: groups of surfers, a collection of umbrellas, margaritas and beers delivered on trays, beach vendors selling their goods, restaurants, bars, and some surf schools crowded together in the busy bazaar on the town beach. Volleyball players have fun on a full size court and dozens of wave riders from beginner to expert give surfing a try.
Pangas sit on the beach waiting to go fishing, snorkeling or whale watching while vacationers mingle. The locals, birds and dogs are also playing together. There is a great vibe.
On Sayulita beach you’ll find a festive, colorful, crazy scene, sometimes with music of roaming bands, but always a lot of fun! Especially when the waves get bigger and the surfers paddle out and demonstrates how it’s done.
Another popular beach in Sayulita is called "Playa Los Muertos"
This is translated to "Beach of the Dead", but don't let this scare you away. This beach is a little lice of paradise on the Sayulita Shore. There are resorts and homes nearby, but the area is removed from the main part of town and much less crowded. Playa Los Muertos is a perfect pocket of sand tucked in a rocky cove among seaside forest and tide pools.
At this beach you can enjoy wading in gentle waves and swimming. Because of a natural breakwater formed by the peninsula, the water is calmer here than at the other beaches. The tide pools are great for wading at low tide and snorkeling at high tide, and you'll find an abundance of colorful little fish and shelled creatures.
The beach has its name because of the nearby cemetery, and a quiet walk among the gravestones should be a part of the experience here. In local the culture, time spent with the dead is supposed to be soothing. Brightly decorated graves beneath the shady canopy are meant to be pleasant places to gather with loved ones, both alive and passed, and the special enchantment of this beach is perhaps lent by the spirits who watch over it.
