Playa San Augustin, Huatulco

4.5
#2 of 15 in Nature in Oaxaca
Sheltered by rocky islands and cliffs, Playa San Augustin features fine, white sand, clear blue-green waters, and coral reefs that attract divers and snorkelers. The beach is nearly one mile (1.5 km) long and surrounded by colorful huts that support bars and restaurants. Rent snorkel equipment and a boat and head on to the reefs to explore the underwater life. The smell of fresh seafood and guacamole will likely lure you into one of the many palapa-style restaurants, where you can try authentic Mexican fare and cold cervezas. Playa San Augustin is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Huatulco Edition.

Where to stay in Huatulco

The planned resort region offers a large selection of accommodations at surprisingly budget-friendly prices. Stay near Marina Chahue for the best access to boat tours, Santa Cruz Huatulco for proximity to the nearby national park, or the main township of Crucecita to be surrounded by the most convenient amenities. For something a bit quieter and more focused on the beach, look slightly north to Tangolunda.
