Watch out for the boats! But otherwise it is really beautiful beach with crystal clear water. Nice for both swimming and snorkeling

We are staying in zicatela but the waves are too strong for swimming so we tried out Angelita. Took a taxi there. There are a few restaurants along the beach. Ours wanted us to spend 400 pesos in order to use their lawn chairs for free. We ended up only spending 315 pesos and they didn't squabble about it. We... More

I was drawn to this beach because the waves in zicatela can be intimidating at the least. When I arrived I realized that this looked more like a pool than a beach and it was packed with people. It was difficult to even find a section of water to swim in. There are a lot of locals around here as... More

Nice little beach with warm clean water, little restaurants and amazing views. Have a delicious coconut or beer and watch beautiful sunset.

This is a rare beach in Puerto Escondido where the waves are not strong. It is a picturesque cove with gentle water where the locals seem to come to the beach. Power boats pull in and out all the time, but know how to avoid the swimmers. There are a couple little restaurants, we had such a nice time... it's... More

This special quaint beach has local families with their palapas serving food and drinks for years. The prices are economical and we always feel welcome. The bay is generally calm so perfect for snorkeling with few surfers. We loved having a swim and cerviche here everyday during our stay at Hotel Ben-zaa which is just up the hill - approx... More

Worth visiting if you in Puerto for few days, mainly food wise. Beach is thiny and unbelievably overcrowded.

This is a busy port for some of the commercial and sport fishing fleet in Puerto Escondido. There is a lot of traffic on the water which all comes ashore eventually since there is no actual dock. It's a busy place and, as such, the beach isn't really great for sunning and/or swimming. The boaters seem very aware of the... More

This beach is crowded with people and boats. It is small and not well maintained. I would look for another beach
