The title is not sarcasm. Maguey Bay is gorgeous. Pack sunscreen, take some food with you, and set up for the day. If you’re in the ocean, take some fish food friendly nibbles to feed the fish. You’ll get swarmed and it’s a fun experience.

This seems to be the best house reef in Huatulco. The reef is healthy. On the beach you can rent snorkeling gear. There are restaurants and umbrellas with chairs to rent.

Little further by taxi, around 50 - 60 pesos from Santa Cruz. Great beach for swimming and snorkelling. A real favourite for the local families, especially on weekends. Lots of choice for food and drink.

Spent an hour at Maguey Bay on a boat excursion. The snorkeling was very good. Managed to catch a glimpse of a large sting ray. Worth the trip!

Our boat captain stopped here to pick up some fins for one of our party for our morning of snorkeling. Good price and they delivered the equipment right to our boat.
