Playa San Augustin, Huatulco

(4.5/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Playa San Augustin a part of your Huatulco vacation plans using our Huatulco trip itinerary builder.
