Great little spot with food and shopping options. Seems to be quite a bit of boat traffic. Lots to see if your just sitting on the beach. There are better places to go swimming with less traffic.

We didn't make it to all the bays in Huatulco (we were only there for a week) but from Las Brisas to San Augistin this was the the perfect one for us.

I loved the bay , the restaurants, the prices and the BEST massages I have ever had at Ocean Spa beside Restaurant FloraMar at end of bay! Sebastian was my therapist. He and his wife, Griselda operate a great outdoor massage retreat. Tele: 9581285158

This was the first beach we saw and I loved how colourful it is! There is beautiful fish to see and swim with but watch out for the small jelly fish later in the day! Advise: go see Angel at Maguey restaurant for his amazing piña coladas ! I'll be back for sure!

Small beach with restaurants, shower, restroom, taxi station close to it, and a safe area for swimming. The water was clear and warm. Wonderfull for the family. It is a place to spend the day.

Easy to spend a day at this beach. Lots of restaurants and shade. Shore is very big and you can go into the calm waters or waters with fun waves. One of our favourites to go to. Water taxi from Santa Cruz is fun or call a cab to take you.

Great snorkelling. Water may be a little rough some days. Beach is great. Large variety of fish. Long walk down stairs to the beach so be ready for the walk back up.
