Beach at the Riu Mazatlan

The beach at the Riu Mazatlan resort is a typical Baja Peninsula beach. It’s one where waves lap along the golden sand shores, palm trees sway in the breeze and the sun gently warms your shoulder. But typical still means extraordinary. For those who are looking to get away from the ordinary, a visit to this beach will provide a relaxing retreat. The Riu Emerald Bay Resort, nestled on these very shores, specializes in relaxation as much as vacations with style.

Called Playa Las Brujas in Spanish—the beach of the witches in English—this stretch of sand is sure to enchant. Like most of the Mazatlan beaches, Playa Las Brujas has big waves that make swimming difficult. But don’t worry, the Riu pool complex is just a few steps away for those who want to go swimming or relax in a lounge chair. The Beach at Riu Mazatlan is perfectly suited for water sports, thanks to the waves and the wide stretch of sand. Local outfitters can equip you what everything you need to have fun on the water, and lessons are readily available.

A number of water sports are including in the all-inclusive package at the Riu Emerald Bay. Guests can grab a body board or arrange for a kayak excursion before hitting the beach at the Riu Mazatlan. Don’t miss the chance to take a catamaran ride, a wonderful way to soak in the sun and views. You’ll also have your choice of beach volleyball courts, workouts on the beach and other fun activities. When you’re ready to relax, don’t worry, drinks and snacks are included too.
