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

This is the bay were you will usually snorkel. A little small so if there are more than three boats it will seem crowded

We didn't get to be there for too long since it was only a short stop in our boat tour, but just seeing it and standing there for a bit was a good experience mostly because of the memories I have in my youth with the movie "Y tu Mamá También". But its great also that it doesn't have humans... More

It was the beach of our dreams. Clear blue green water that we could've swam in all day long. We snorkelled by the rocks too and saw a great variety of fish & coral. It is worth taking your time and finding the breaks in the rock. I advise taking food with you so you don't have to leave to... More
