Located on a ten mile long white sand beach on a small private island in the heart of the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve just south of Ascension Bay Mexico, Playa Blanca is uniquely situated to access the fertile and seldom fished waters of the Bahia Del Espiritu Santo. The fishery centers on sight fishing for bonefish, permit, and juvenile tarpon but snook, snapper,jacks and barracuda are also present. Much of the fishing is done from 16ft Dolphin Skiffs but wade fishing is also common. Catch and release fishing is practiced for all of the primary species. Playa Blanca also offers numerous activities for non-anglers including guided snorkeling, sea kayaking, bird watching, Mayan ruins, bicycling and windsurfing.
