Playa San Augustin, Huatulco

4.5
#2 of 14 in Nature in Oaxaca
Water Body Beach
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.

  • The Bay of San Agustín is the most secluded and regularly tours don't take you but it is worth much! Our hotel guide suggested we get there "as the locals" so we took a shared taxi, then the urbano-suburbano truck (so called) and finally another collective taxi that took us by 13 km of dirt road and at the end... a wonderful place! A beautiful, quiet beach where the only thing you can do is relax, admire the scene and give thanks for a moment you can enjoy as well! Along the beach there are many spots to eat but we proved a simply delicious shrimp aguachile an a pub called Lala, definitely a great experience and definitely the best beaches of Huatulco!

  • The view is postcard and reef is excellent for snorkeling that it has many restaurants where you can eat at affordable prices, the only point in favor and against that it can only be reached by boat or by a stretch of dirt road which makes it rather difficult to locate but it helps to concervarlo away from the hustle and bustle.

  • Beautiful beach, of the most close to the color of turquoise sea that I've seen in the Mexican Pacific. Area of reef for snorkeling and calm surf. There are restaurants all along the beach. There are enough good options, look at the clean as a reference. Some offer showers to rinse after entering the sea. Good choice to go with the family.
