Hip, Santa Cruz vibe. You need to be a great swimmer and experienced surfer but just a novice beachcomber to to enjoy the beach side restaurants and bars. I highly recommend grabbing a table on the beach to take in a sunset while you're there.

If you are into surfing this is your place to go. It also has the main strip behind it. The waves are said to be the 3rd tallest in the world. They have nice restaurants to take a bite.

This is one of the nicest beaches on the Oaxacan coast. Wide sand, big waves, lots of chairs and umbrellas. And lots of surfing. Not good for swimming, but a great place to sit and spend the day.

This is a gorgeous stretch of beach but unless you are a surfer or and extremely strong swimmer do not swim here. The waves and the under current will definitely sweep you away. We just walk on the beach and watch the surfers.

Very private beach, clean and very few people. practically had the whole ocean to ourselves. Strong surf and undertow not safe for swimming, but nice waves.
