Thirty-eight kilometers (23 miles) down the road from El Tuito, this beautiful beach is several miles long, embraced on either end by a rocky point.
Mayto is one of the last unspoiled beaches on the Pacific Coast of Mexico and driving south from Puerto Vallarta to the town of El Tuito and then to the Mayto Beach area is a refreshing way to reach this destination. With beautiful sunsets on an endless beach, this is a paradise waiting to be discovered.
The sand is clean and slopes down to meet the rough to semi rough surf. Mayto Beach is a great place for a long walk on the beach or fishing from shore. Early morning is a great time to walk the beach and see what the tide may have washed up.
In late summer and fall there's a turtle camp where volunteers protect the eggs of the black and olive Ridley turtles that nest there.
When you arrive, the sight of endless white sands and deep blue waters will leave you speechless, as miles of beach lie before you to be explored.
The sound of ocean water crashing as the spray reaches high in the sky is amazing, and dipping your feet into the water will awaken your inner soul as you are mesmerized by the beauty of Mayto.
The soft golden sand is hot, but it feels great between your toes. Standing there, with the ocean as far as the eye can see, you will realize that this is one of those moments that you will remember forever.
Once the sun goes down the beauty continues with the stars giving a show, as the lack of light pollution gives them a chance to shine with brilliance.
The word "Breathtaking" is simply not descriptive enough for the town of Mayto.
