The pier is built to too high for fishing boats, but there is good fishing off the main pier, with many catching fish the size of speckled trout but the shape of tuna. It is also a popular meeting place at dusk and dawn. Playa Principal is connected to the bay’s other beach by a stone walkway that goes over the rocky cliff that divides the two. It is called the “andador.” Waves crash on the boulders below the walkway and can spray seawater onto the path at high tide. After crossing the andador, one arrives to Playa Panteón, which translates to “Cemetery Beach.” This beach is named for the community cemetery that lies just behind it. The sand is less fine, but it is a little more sheltered than Playa Principal and is popular for snorkeling around the rocks. This beach is lined with restaurants and lounge chairs and have lifeguards, which is not common in Mexico. thumb Playa Boquilla (File:PlayaBoquilla.JPG) In addition to the two beaches in the bay proper, there are a number of small isolated coves with beaches just to the east of Puerto Angel. These include Playa Ixtacahuite, Playa La Mina, Playa La Boquilla and Playa La Tijera. Ixtacahuite Beach is best for scuba diving and recreational fishing because it is next to a coral reef. La Boquilla Beach is on a small shallow bay and is best for snorkeling. It can be reached by road with a rugged vehicle but is easier to arrive by boat from Puerto Angel. There is a restaurant that's open during the high season seasons. thumb left Cafe Maya housed in a palapa (File:CafeMayaZipolite.JPG)
