The beach at Stone Island

Technically not an island -- it is a peninsula located just off the south end of the coast of Old Mazatlan that can be reached by land from the east -- Stone Island (Isla de la Piedra) is most often accessed by a short boat ride across the channel and definitely has a tropical island feel!

This proximity has long made Stone Island one of the most popular and frequently recommended Mazatlan day trips. Tranquil and clean, Isla de la Piedra is the perfect beach getaway from Mazatlan, and a perfect Mazatlan day trip.

Mariachis and surfer at Stone IslandStone Island is known throughout Mexico for its beautiful, long sandy beaches -- Mexico's third largest coconut grove follows the length of the southern beach -- which seem to disappear as they stretch to the horizon. Because of its sheltered orientation, the beaches of Stone Island are usually calm, and the water often warmer than on Mazatlan's city beaches. Gentle waves at Isla de la Piedra make for refreshing easy swimming, and the beach is the perfect place among our day trips around Mazatlan to take in the hot Mexican sun.

The beach at Stone Island

With about 4,000 residents, Stone Island day trips from Mazatlan have just the right combination of amenities and tranquility. Palapa restaurants line the Stone Island beach where you land. Populated by vendors and, sometimes, mariachis, these breezy and shady Stone Island restaurants are make a lovely gateway to the island and a great place to cool off in the shade and enjoy the ocean view.

On Sundays and holidays Isla de la Piedra draws Mexican families on their own Stone Island day trips, but at other times tourists on Mazatlan day trips are likely have the beach to themselves.

Stone Island lancha ticketStone Island Day Trip Directions

Getting to Isla de la Piedra couldn't be easier!

To begin Mazatlan day trips to Stone Island just drive (or take a taxi) to the Playa Sur Embarcadero near the ferry terminal -- you'll see signs for various lancha operators. The ride is short, the lancha's for Stone Island leave about every 20 minutes, and cost only 20p -- one of our least expensive Mazatlan day trips!
