Playa Principal

Playa Principal - Mexico

Right at the heart of Puerto Escondido, Playa Principal sits tucked in a small curved bay. It’s proximity to the town centre makes it one of the area’s most popular beaches. Its pale sands sweep gently down into the waters, while a 1.5 kilometre walkway parallels Playa Principal and is the location of several restaurants, bars and places to stay.

The walkway provides the perfect spot for an evening sunset stroll or to watch the fishermen preparing for a day on the ocean in the early morning. Cleanliness can be a bit of an issue for Playa Principal because of its proximity to the centre of town.
