Playa Los Muertos (Beach of the Dead) - Col. Emiliano Zapata - is the city's largest public beach. Legend has it the beach's name (Dead Men's Beach) stems from a battle between pirates and local miners after which bodies remained strewn on the beach, but it is a legend since there were never any miners in Vallarta. The south side of the beach is a popular gathering spot for gay and lesbian tourists. The north end is frequented mostly by locals and national tourists. © istock/kimVermaat
