Punta Mita Nayarit Mexico
A Tranquil Getaway

Located about 15-km southwest of Sayulita and only 8-km west of Destiladeras in Riviera Nayarit lies Punta Mita Mexico, voted #12 for 2020s Best Places to Visit in Mexico by US News & World Report. It also topped the list for 2021!

As you set foot in this coastal town and stand in the white sands of the peninsula, you will be overcome with tranquility as you look out over the immense Pacific Ocean.

10-km of Virgin Beach

When you are looking at Nayarit destinations for a vacation you want to leave the world behind, as if you were alone on a desert island, sheltered in a hidden refuge. This is an apt description of Punta Mita Mexico. This exclusive and luxurious vacation getaway rises from the peninsula and includes almost 10 kilometers (six miles) of virgin Pacific coast beaches, surrounded by rolling green hills. In fact, Punta Mita beaches were voted #5 for 2020s Best Beaches in Mexico by US News & World Report.

Here, the Pacific Ocean opens before those visitors who never seem to tire of admiring the endless turquoise-blue depths of the sea.

Fully Developed Resort Destination

Punta Mita Mexico was originally home to artisans, merchants, and fishermen. It is now one of the most sophisticated and select destinations in Riviera Nayarit Mexico that has been developed for tourism.

Along the shores of the Coral del Rusco and El Anclote beaches, which stretch for 500 meters (1,640 feet), luxurious hotels and resorts have been constructed. Hotels like the W Hotel or the Grand Palladium offer all of the essential amenities to please even the most demanding of travelers.

Imagine taking in the open ocean as you read a satisfying book. Or how about walking through the vacation resort grounds seemingly surrounded by Babylonian gardens. Try pampering your palate as you are mesmerized by the sun’s descent below the Pacific Ocean horizon. And of course, in this exclusive Paradise, golf at Pacifico Golf Course —another gem of Punta de Mita Nayarit— is a must.

Pacifico Golf Course Punta Mita Mexico

Here, in 1999, the renamed Punta Mita Pacifico Golf Course course was inaugurated. This par-72 course is famous for its 3b-style hole —the only one in the world— known as the “whale’s tale” as it is located on a natural island 199 yards from the tee and along the beach.

This emblematic course, designed by famous golfer Jack Nicklaus, is joined by another worthy course, the Punta Mita Bahía, which promises to delight even the most experienced players from around the world.

“You couldn’t ask for more beautiful scenery for a golf course than Punta de Mita,” comments Nicklaus. This second par-72 course that is a true challenge for golfers with its 18 holes is distributed across hilly terrain with Miniverde greens and Bermuda fairways surrounded by exotic gardens.

The golf course includes five par-threes, eight par-fours, and five par-fives, and the green has a peculiar slope with a deep bunker on the left side.

This destination offers you a unique golfing experience with fantastic views of the Pacific Ocean. It is no wonder that Punta Mita Mexico has earned recognition as one of the most important golfing resorts in the world.

Other Golf Course Amenities

Dressing rooms, golf shops, a restaurant, bar, practice area, and classes with golfing professionals are other golfing services offered for players and visitors.

Both courses are part of the Punta Mita Club de Golf, meaning admittance is exclusively for residents of the subdivision or guests staying at the Four Seasons Punta Mita Resorts and St. Regis Punta Mita Resort.

And to round out your adventure you can visit some of the boutiques or exclusive restaurants of the area serving delicious gourmet delicacies. Treat yourself to a spa treatment or let loose in any one of the nightlife hotspots.

Let yourself be swept away by the fine sands, whimsical rock formations, and fresh air of Punta Mita Mexico. You will return home with an allover sense of rest and regeneration. You will not be disappointed.
