“Great swimming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Lovely beach for swimming and snorkeling. Big hint when you arrive in your taxi and are surrounded by guys offering spots at their restaurants tell them you are meeting friends that are already there and you need to find them. This way you can walk the beach looking at all the different restaurants and places to "park" for the day without being pressured.

“Another beautiful bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

great snorkeling with restuarants. Can be crowded on weekends, and there are many vendors that sell various items. Quieter during week and more room to relax.

“Beautiful safe beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

We swam and the water was perfect. It was well worth the cab ride to get there. This is the beach with the steps at the back. Of course there were waiters trying to get you to their own bars but once setttled it was very relaxing.

“awesome beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

This place had a good beach. We ate good food here for lunch. I would go back to this beach again. It is a good spot for fresh fish. Most places in Huatulco have very good fish though.

“great local beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Want to see how the local folks enjoy their private time away from the everyday humdrum of stress/work? Come to this beach on the weekend. The Mexican folks who come to this beach are some of the most pleasant,and courteous folks you'll ever meet. They enjoy their family time immensely and this beach is no exception. With eateries up and down the bay, cab service available most of the time and prices that will keep you coming back; you'll want to make a date to visit Maguey Bay while you're in Huatulco.
