During our honeymoon we rented a boat in Santa Cruz and we spend a half a day there. If you go bring your own food and drinks because there are not restaurants on the beach and don´t forget... More

This is an awesome remote beach accessible only by boat or a hike through the jungle. It is a very large, virtually deserted beach fronting on the jungle.

We stopped here by boat and were the only people on the beach. We didn't see another boat even pass the bay while we swam and had lunch. It's almost unbelievable that a place like this exists so close to towns and resorts. Very special.

As you have read, most people think Cacaluta beach is only excessible by boat. This is incorrect. This beach boarders the National Park and is accessible by a dirt path that you can bike or walk on. We rented bicycles and a guide from Easy Bikes and had an amazing adventure. This beach will not be accessibe to the public... More

Nice and quite. Better to go there with private boat to stay as much as you want. Diving was fantastic as well

Sweet beach. Go by boat with Tikko, who gives you all the time in the world to swim, walk and enjoy the lovely bays of Huatulco. The 8 hour boat trip with him to all these gorgeous, empty beaches was one of the best experiences of my life.

Visited this heaven on earth via private panga "Mantarraya II". With corona in hand, we sat on this totally secluded beach watching whales breaching right in front of us. What an incredible sight. Our captain Eddy made this trip one we will never forget. If anyone is interested in living the same dream as us, we highly recommend our amigo.... More

Nine of us went on a boating excursion with this wonderful man, his son and nephew. His boat was clean, safe and he spoke very good English. We saw dolphins, sting rays (jumping) and turtles. The snorkeling was amazing and the secluded beach was the best. Recommend Tony for sure. Picks you up just by the Barcelo
