#2 of 17 in Nature in Oaxaca
#Water Body, #Beach, #Must See
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.
