Playa San Augustin, Huatulco

4.5
#2 of 19 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.

  • First time I go to the beaches of Oaxaca and was shocked by its color, cleanliness and tranquility. I Had the opportunity to snorkel and it was an unforgettable experience, not a place to spend so much time because there is not much to do, but indisputably its color is amazing. You Can't miss on your visit to Huatulco.

  • Most do boat trips, 300 pesos per person. You can go by bus to the crossroads (15 pesos), then collective taxi 30 pesos up to the beach, the 2 thirds of the trip a lot of dust as it is a track. I waited 40 minutes before I filled the cab. Very nice beach, leave on the left much quieter, for 50 pesos you will have shade under a paillote without partition, good bathing and average snorkling. In the late morning the performance in catamaran will arrive with these 100 passengers, they remain 2 to 3 good hours.... The restaurants all have the same fare, between 150 and 200 pesos at noon. Rental of Tubas masks on site, it is possible to lodge under tent or hammock, qqls single bungalow also. It's starting to be a lot of concrete.
