Playa San Francisco, San Pancho Beach
Playa San Francisco is the main beach in the town of San Pancho (San Francisco). This wide San Pancho beach is located off of 12 reef breaks, yielding treacherous waves that can reach up to 10 feet high in rainy season (May through October). Since the waves break close to shore over a mix of sand and rocks, the waves hit heavy and fast which can be dangerous. While Playa San Francisco beach is not recommended for swimming and beginner surfing, many advanced surfers love the large waves. There are two beach restaurants where many enjoy a cocktail and a sunset dinner. San Pancho beach is beautiful and clean, with an estuary at the south end, crating a lovely sanctuary for birds and wildlife.
San Pancho beach is perfect for sightseeing, sunbathing, and fishing off of the shore. Enjoy strolling, and building sand castles with friends and family on the San Pancho beach on the Riviera Nayarit in Mexico.
