Acapulco’s “secret beach” is so named as it tucked away in an upmarket corner of Santa Lucía Bay with public access very limited. Overlooking the beach, beyond the fringe of dense vegetation are some of this holiday city’s most exclusive postcodes. It is therefore not too surprising they wanted to keep this hidden gem to themselves.

Unlike many of the beaches in Acapulco, which are battered by the Pacific swells, Playa del Secreto is tucked away in a sheltered cove. It is probably all this seclusion and almost wilderness feel to the beach which has over the years made this a popular spot for naturists. Whether this is still a nude beach is hard to know - it seems also to be a secret! They only way to know for sure is to go for yourself.

Getting to Playa del Secreto is also something of a mission - unless of course you have access to one of the condos that back onto it. Otherwise you are probably looking at taking a boat ride here. And bring everything you need for the day as there are no ameneites here.
