Spent the day here on a recent vacation to Huatulco. It was a recommended beach, laid in the sun and relaxed not many people were here on a weekday. Boats coming and going and snorkeling available. Looks to have restaurants. Vendors selling their items as well. Not a too far cab ride from town. Nice paved road to travel on... More

Food was good and lovely location spoiled by an onslaught of persistent salespeople. I appreciate that they need to put food on their table but this was overwhelming.

This is a great bay to dive in. Reasonable visibility 15 to 20 feet when I was there. Cooler current in the bay and some surge to deal with. Lots of sea life to look at. Rays and Stonefish.

Another great little beach with great seafood restaurants - had some of the best fish tacos anywhere. The waves were a little rough but once you got past them, you could bob along forever. Water was the perfect temperature.

Took a taxi here and spent the day in front of El Zarape Restaurant and Felix took care of us, putting our chaise lounge chairs out with an umbrella and a little table. Buckets of cold beer, the best margueritas, fresh fish baked in the clay oven. We swam and sunbathed, people watched for about 4 hours....so much fun that... More

Very pretty cove and some good places to eat. I spent the day in a hammock, with no pressure to do anything but relax and enjoy my day. Really nice afternoon.

Definitely a destination for dining, sun and sand. Whether you arrive by a bays tour boat or taxi you will find a nice beach and an overwhelming assortment of seafood restaurants. Worth going.

Now for a different experience, have a swim and then lunch at Maguey, you wont regret it. The restaurants are mostly all owned by local families and believe me, they want you back for more, so they won't poison you !!! The cheapest cervesa around. Catch your own fish and have them cook it for you. They have wood fire... More

A very nice small bay with a good depth of sand. Plenty of watersports, but there was very little hassle. Go to Nivel Mar, and outstanding beach bar.
