Playa Puerto Marqués stretches e. of Acapulco along a narrow neck of little Puerto Marqués Bay. It has a backdrop of mountains, the waves are gentle and suitable for swimming, water skiing and sailing, and seafood shacks are literally at the water's edge. Another attraction is the drive along the Carretera Escénica (Scenic Highway), the eastward extension of Costera Miguel Alemán that winds past Icacos Naval Base; it offers magnificent views looking back toward the city and Acapulco Bay. This beach is crowded with families on weekends.
