Discover 3 Riviera Nayarit beaches for your next vacation.

Summer is always a season of joy for many of us. This is because it is often synonymous with travel and discovering new places that we had not discovered or perhaps return to the places we love and to which we constantly return, for the happiness they cause us.

It is during the summer, the hottest season of the year that you must crave to get out of the heat of the city to places where the heat is more tolerable. That's why it's one of the best seasons to travel to the beach. The sea breeze and the shade of the palm trees make the heat not only tolerable, but very pleasant.  

Riviera Nayarit is one of the most visited beach tourist destinations during the summer, and the golden beaches of Riviera Nayarit invite you to relax and take off the heat with the combination of the breeze coming from the sea and the fresh air of the Sierra Madre Occidental. Below we recommend 3 beaches in Riviera Nayarit that you can't miss on your next vacation.

San Francisco, Nayarit, Surf and nature beach

San Francisco, or San Pancho, as it is colloquially known, is a town located 22.2 km north of Grand Matlali Hills Resort & Spa, you can get there by car in about 30 minutes and it is certainly a trip you must make if you want to find a town with a very special charisma.

San Pancho is a town that receives tourists from all over the world, many of whom have taken up residence there, setting up their own businesses and promoting artistic activities. So when you travel to San Pancho Nayarit, you will find a very interesting multicultural mosaic.

But here we come to talk about the beach, when you enter the town you just have to ask the locals how to get to the beach of San Pancho, it is not a long way, and we advise you to wear comfortable clothes, because the town is populated by trees, so heat is quite strong.

San Pancho beach is world-famous for its good-sized waves, extraordinary for surfing. They are not necessarily dangerous, and you can swim without any problem, but we recommend you do it with caution and do not go too far from the shore. If you are traveling with children, you should not let them out of your sight.

Litibú & Destiladeras

If you follow the old Punta de Mita — Sayulita road, you will find a small town called Higuera Blanca, you can enter the town and follow the road until you find the beautiful beach of Litibú. Litibú is a semi virgin beach with golden sands and calm waves.

Litibú is an extraordinary beach for swimming, the swell is medium, so you can calmly play with your children at the seashore. Being on the other side of Punta de Mita, the sea extends to the horizon with nothing to interrupt it. At 23.3 km from Gran Matlali Hills Resort & Spa, Litibú is a beach worth visiting.

Along the road that connects La Cruz de Huanacaxtle with Punta de Mita, you will find Destiladeras beach. With its more than 5 km of extension it is one of the favorite beaches for visitors, so we recommend you arrive at a good time to find a place to plant your umbrella.

One of the advantages of this beach is that it has public restrooms and parking, they have a small fee, do not forget to bring change. This is a beach that offers fun for everyone. If you like thrills, this is an ideal beach for surfing, the waves can reach up to one and a half meters high. If, on the other hand, you prefer tranquility, you can contemplate the birds and beautiful landscapes. Destiladeras is an excellent beach to watch the sunset before returning to your hotel.
