The Beach

Saladita is the famous peeling left point just north of Zihuatanejo. The reef is formed by river cobble from the nearby Rio Los Llanos. It breaks on any tide. There are several take-off spots keeping the lineup spread out. Inside novices will find a great learning area. The wave won't hold much above overhead. Or the wave holds, but the current pushes at about 5 knots into the bay. It is a long paddle out to the take-off.
