Maguey Bay, Huatulco

3.8
#5 of 11 in Nature in Huatulco
Water Body Nature / Park
Maguey Bay attracts tourists with its vivid local culture, unusual gastronomy, and calm clear waters at the far end of the beach where you can snorkel. Have a shot of mescal to work out an appetite, and then stroll along choosing cuisine from the busy seafood shacks here. The nearby Punta Maguey provides a good scuba diving site with tropical fish, walls, and caves. If you wish to spend the whole day hanging out with the locals, put up your own tent or simply mellow out on patio chairs while sipping a cold beer. Amenities include public showers and restrooms.

  • Very nice for swimming with several restaurants to eat but with rather high prices for services offered by places

  • The beach is very nice but the food is too expensive and too ugly, if you take some sandwiches or something else, and besides it's a horrible palapa.

  • The beach and the sea are spectacular! Not the place where we stayed while we were there since there are no palapas. Expensive prices and regular food, plus toilets did not have water.
