Playa Zipolite, Mexico is a low-key beach resort on Mexico’s Pacific coast. The beach has glorious golden sands and is set in a tiny and beautiful cove, stretching between two rocky headlands.

Visitors come to this beach for the excellent surf and sheltered beaching making this beach popular with backpackers along with surfers. However, this beach is also known as “The Beach of the Dead” (Playa de los Muertos), because of the number drownings that have happened as a result of the dangerous rip currents in the sea that borders this pretty beach.
