We went there as a part of a tour by boat but I asked if you can reach the bay by car, and the answer was yes. This is a small beach wtih a calm blue sea. I didn´t snorkel there but I saw a few people doing it. The seafood was great, I had 8 huge shrimps that were... More

A little pricey for where it was. The group had a fish plate but the food was very good a little different from what you normally get. If you don't like fish this is not the place for you, Snorkeling was good we saw several schools of fish and a sea spider and sea urchins

Such a cool bay lined up with restaurants in the sand. Great place to sit back and have a few beers and some great seafood.

On the day we went to Maguey Bay, there were roughly 45-50 people on the entire beach. Although the beach is fairly commercialized, it is so small that this means there were only 7-8 restaurants at most. The water was a little murky, but we still spent hours snorkeling on the two large reefs that run parallel to the hills... More

Maguey is the nicest beach in Huatulco. Go early, grab a seat at El Costeno, have a few drinks, walk the nice long beach, go for a swim, and watch the tour boats come in an un-load the folks doing the seven bay tours. A great place for people watching, sun, and good food/drinks. Enjoy, we have made this an... More

We stopped by Maguey Beach for lunch one day....it is a very busy beach, but very beautiful as well. Lots of vendors on the beach, lots of places to eat. A unique experience. Beautiful water - looks so green.

Be sure to go to Nival del Mar, the food is really good here. The Bay is beautiful and calm and is a great place to snorkel.
