This beach is where we spent most of our weekend, because it was so beautiful and peaceful! The VillaSol Suites has a beach club here and the service, food and drinks are great!

The beach is on of the quiet beaches in Puerto Escondido. Great for long walks. The can release little baby turtles into the ocean. Great experience! It starts at 5 pm.

This beach is one of the most quiet and beautiful of the area. There is restaurants walking distance, hotels and wow, what a view.. We loved playa bacocho so much that we cant wait to go back in November!

At the southern (eastern) end, 2 hotel-run beach clubs (Villasol & Coco's) tastefully set back in the treeline, open to non-residents for...More

Wonderful experience of seeing and participating in the baby turtle release at 5:00 pm daily. The beach however, is like Zicatela, with strong surf and waves. I cannot recommend for swimming as the waves have a very strong undertow. And I lost a pair of...More

This is a mostly deserted beach and excellent for a long secluded walk. The picture taking on the rocks is amazing. They are spectacular with the waves crashing in and the salt spray leaping up! You can get some really great shots. Generally too rough...More

just take a cab to the beach. There are only two beach clubs on the beach and the rest is deserted, so take some water with you. You can get to the beach via corral beach or through the beach clubs. Nothing to book, just... More
