#16 of 253 in Things to do in Oaxaca
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.

  • The best in the Pacific. You have to walk and climb. But the effort is worthwhile. Magnificent view from there, only a pity show up drunk who have no idea of what they do there

  • The sunset here is unique and beautiful. We must get time to have good site to watch everything, unfortunately there are many people. The walk is a little heavy, so go with repellent of mosquitoes for the back and comfortable.

  • The sunset is especially beautiful from this spot! Worth the 15 minute trek. Bring a flashlight for the return journey.
  • Excelent place to sit and watch the sunset. There is also a natural jacuzzi where people can swim.
  • 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
  • A fabulous place for a walk and vista!
  • One of the coolest places and hikes in the area. Don't miss a sunset here.
