This is a very nice beach.

I enjoyed the beach here. The snorkeling was ok. Tons of fish to the left of the beach near the the end of the beach. This place can also get very busy.

Really like the Bahia and the restaurants BUT vendors walking through the restaurant while you eat was not great. I'm usually pretty tolerant but this was not pleasant. Recommend walking to the far restaurants when you tour boat drops you off for a little more tranquility!

Keep visiting this beach to see if it can give us a better feeling when we are there for the day but it hasn't yet. There are constant tourist boats pulling in and out with their loads of people either getting in or out of the bay. There is the hassle of the owners in the restaurants trying to get... More

Such a beautiful beach. Powdery, soft, hard packed sand... very different from Tangolunda Bay. Several small restaurants to choose from. Incredibly clear water! Definitely worth a visit!

Possibly the most commercial beach in huatulco, full of restaurants and people selling you stuff, had to be very hard with them to let us have some time, we went there later in the day so it wasn't as crowded but still it was full of average families and snorkel tours, snorkel was good but watch out, there are jellyfish...

We stopped here on our tour after snorkeling at Organo. It was quite busy but we just had lunch in a beach restaurant with thatched roof and sand floor. It was nice to be out of the sun, and lunch was yummy. We shared shrimp in a cheese sauce in a half pineapple and had some great guacamole and pico... More

We visited this beach, expecting it to be quiet, since it was a few kilometres from Santa Cruz. When we arrived, the usual touts tried to herd us to their particular palapas, but that was expected. What we didn't anticipate was the hordes of tourists, primarily Mexicans, getting dropped off by both buses and boats of all sizes! It became... More

We went there with an excursion and had lunch at the El Costeño restaurant. The beach is perfect and very good for snorkel with coral reefs
