Our group of 14 arrived by boat - we jumped in and swam the last bit. How do you say WOW - but better. We walked quite a distance on the beach - it is much larger than you realize. Well worth the effort to visit.

Easiest to get here by boat... but we made the 30-40 minute hike thru the woods from the end of the paved road. BRING WATER! Arriving at the beach is like a mirage -- after sweating thru the jungle brush you come to a magnificent, huge, hilly, powdery sand beach ringed by giant rocks & cliffs. I've been to many many beaches and this is one of the most stunning... and natural. We saw a few private boats moored & enjoying the beach - a few other tour boats passed by... but we were the only people from land -- for half-a-day. Swimming is ok in most areas. Very limited shade and NO services of any kind. Felt like Castaway! Fabulous!

Accessible by boat and we found it gorgeous, almost empty and unfortunately water a bit murky for snorkelling. Worth a trip though. What a gorgeous Mexican paradise Huatulco is.

We asked around and were told that a boat was the only safe way to get to Cacaluta however, Google Maps, suggested otherwise. There is a signed foot path access down the road from the turn off to Maguey Beach. The trail is 1.5km to the beach along a flat tree covered hard packed path. The beach is beautiful but one the day we were there the ocean was rough and attempting to enter the water would have been dangerous. On the plus side, all the boats that came into the bay could not drop off their passengers so we had beach to ourselves. To get back to La Crucecita. we walked back to Maguey Beach (approx. 3km beach to beach) and took a taxi from the Maguey Beach taxi stand. There are several signed walking paths in the park. The park gate is monitored by a ranger and it closes at 6pm. No services so bring your own water, food. There is a shade canopy at the beach
