Playa Esmeralda

Located 5 kilometers away from Guardalavaca beach lies a relatively small segment of beach of 900 meters in length flanked by two promontories that caused its shoreline to adopt a curious half moon shape.

The beach owes its name to the brilliant emerald tones adopted by its marine waters. The unparalleled limpidity of the water and its ultra-fine grains of sand consistently astonish visitors, who mostly stay at one of the two hotel facilities conveniently situated in the beach: the Paradisus Río de Oro and the Sol Río de Luna y Mares.

It shares with neighboring Guardalavaca a swathe of sea about 18 kilometers deep to the north, where one finds more than 30 diving sites with shipwrecks at hand to make the delights of travelers who relish nosing around in mysteries buried in the depths of the sea.
