Subregion: Costa Tortugas
Playa Las Tortugas is an exquisite five-mile stretch of beach on the coast of Nayarit in the still unspoiled area of Boca de Chila. This portion of the coast is often referred to as Costa Tortuga — Turtle Coast — and, as the name implies, this coast is a specially designated area to protect endangered sea turtles.
The pristine beach of Playa Las Tortugas is one of the most beautiful and romantic on the Nayarit Riviera. The sandy beach is framed by coconut palms along its full length and is perfect for walking and beachcombing for pretty seashells. During low tide the shallow waters at the northern end of the beach extend for several meters from the shore and are perfect for a fun-filled frolic in the waves and also for body boarding or skimboarding.
