But I dont recommend trying to hike throughout jungle to get there without someone who knows the path well. Way too easy to get lost !
If you do get there, this beach is secluded, clear , clean, no undertow...feels safe. No facilities.

We hiked to this beach which was not fun! It was very humid, sticky and a bit muddy and the path initially was quite confusing. It took about 30 mins but it was so worth it! This beach is basically untouched and beautiful...lots of sand, clear blue waters and only a few people. Do take an umbrella and all you need - water and food - as there is nothing there and the sun is quite intense. Highly recommended.

We hiked to this beach from Villa Blanca Hotel. There are lovely, wide, nicely landscaped sidewalks all along - almost to the end of the road. Took about an hour & half to get to the gate at the end of the road which closes at 6pm. There is a security guard at the gate who tells you mosquito repellent is advised - we did not encounter any bugs.
Through the gate you walk along a jungle trail that is also used by a few ATV tours.
Took about another 40 minutes on the Jungle trail. Be sure to take the FIRST LEFT TURN ,when the trail splits....unfortunately we did not and you can walk for miles in a maze of other trails that split off leading no -where deeper into the jungle- not fun!
We got to the beach which is pretty, but quite deserted with hardly any shade except a dilapidated palm shelter. The ocean was a bit rough in this cove, which meant swimming was too dangerous, compared to the other beach coves. There was a few other people there who had come on an ATV tour. We did not see many birds or wildlife on the jungle trail or on the beach compared with the other beaches. We hike and swim a lot......so.....I would only recommend this beach if on a boat tour or if you have lots of time and need a new long hike in Huatulco.

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!
