Playa Miramar is undoubtedly the most important attraction of the entire state, and this beach is considered to be one of the most beautiful of the Gulf of Mexico. Its shores cover about 10 km (6 mi), with extensive golden sandy areas where people can find palapas with lounge chairs, ample parking, restaurants, hotels, public restrooms, motorcycle and bike rentals, and a special area for camping. This is also a favorite spot among fans of water sports for kayaking, scuba diving, windsurfing and kitesurfing. The sea in this area is very calm with gentle waves, a strikingly beautiful blue color, and shallow waters. There is public transportation to the beach, or if traveling by car there is a Coastal Boulevard that goes from the entrance to the Malecon(boardwalk). All of the hotels and shops are located along the avenue.
