Playa Tangolunda

A 500 metre stretch of golden sand edged by rocks to either extreme, Playa Tangolunda nestles in the shallow depth of Huatulco Bay just a short drive from Parque Nacional Huatulco. Backed by a mix of high-end hotels, it can be reached via the Acapulco to Salina Cruz Highway (Highway 200) with public parking within walking distance.

Sea breezes help to keep the air on Playa Tangolunda fresh, while there’s no shortage of attractive foliage-filled surrounds to entertain the eye when soaking up the sun. Since the beach is set back slightly from much of the rest of Oaxaca’s coastline, the waves reaching shore aren’t as strong as they are elsewhere, making swimming a possibility on Playa Tangolunda.

Consisting of both public and private areas belonging to the beachside hotels, there are plenty of water sports available, and visitors are only a couple of minutes away from numerous places to eat and drink.
