Such a nice beach, worth the steps. Great waves to mess about it, few places to get food and drinks, loungers for 75 pesos. Can rent surf boards too. Go up to Espadin for a drink during sunset! Amazing.

Nicest beach in Puerto Escondido. Well sheltered with lots of surfers and simple bars/restaurants right on the sand along the half moon shaped cove framed by rocks. Long access stairwell to get there.

In Puerto Escondido the best place if you want to swim. Small bay in which one also wants to make his first steps as a beginner on the surfboard. Nevertheless, one should not underestimate the surf.

Amazing beach in a bay where you can swim among surfers and turtles, but the stairs to the beach may turn away older people. Restaurants on the beach are quite simple.

It's a small but super nice beach, the only thing we didn't like is that most of the places charge you 200 pesos for sunbeds and umbrella. there is one place at the end of the beach that let you use the sun beds for...More

Yo creo que sólo en taxi, pero los taxis de calle en Puerto Escondido son muy económicos. Siempre cobran entre 25 y 35 pesos la dejada en la zona de Puerto.
