Punta Cometa, Mazunte

(340+ reviews on the web)
Lookout
Venture to Punta Cometa, a high, rocky cape with expansive views of the Pacific Ocean. Standing at the southernmost point of Oaxaca, this spot is renowned for its sunset view, so expect to see other tourists during that time of day. Trails among grassy shrubs and cacti line the cliffs' edge; these eventually lead you to adjacent beaches. While here, be on the lookout for migrating whales and flocks of pelicans. Use our Mazunte holiday planner to arrange your visit to Punta Cometa and other attractions in Mazunte.

  • It is a magical and beautiful place, there you can see the most beautiful creation of the world: sunrises and sunsets with a spectacular view, and having a vita to 360 degrees of the immensity of the sea. An unimaginable spectacle

  • Punta says you can not miss the spectacular sunset, I think it is one of the best on the coast of Oaxaca.

  • Beautiful sunset at Punta Cometa, bidding farewell to the star King as if he were a rock star! All clapping!

  • Beautiful view. Some locals played music at the sunset last time I went there. Pack some water and get decent shoes. A few annoying dogs were there too, running around, but nothing too serious. Bring a pareo to sit on
  • One of the coolest places and hikes in the area. Don't miss a sunset here.
  • One of the few places on a mainland where you can see the sun rise and set over the water from the same spot. Don't think it will be a romantic desolate spot though; there will be a crowd who will trudge up and down the dusty and steep path to get there, take a photo and leave.Hang around and they soon leave so you can chill out with the remainder.
  • Love it, great view and fresh salty air!
  • Beautiful viewpoint, perfect for romantic evenings watching the sunset. Just watch out for snakes on the way back though once it gets dark!
