One of the nicest beaches we've ever seen. Sure hope someone in government never caves and allows a resort to be developed here. This is pure eye candy.

Great stop on the bay tour! You can rent an umbrella for shade under the sun and some locals sell coconuts and beers. If you rent snorkeling gear before you get on the boat to this beach, you won't regret it, lots of ocean life!

Very nice beach and sand. Only a couple of vendors here. Went on a tour and did snorkeling which was very nice.

The sand is very soft. It is hard to walk on. The currents are very strong so I didn't like this beach. You are fighting the whole time in the water. The view is stunning. The least favorite of the seven bays

This was a great beach to snorkel at. There is a very strong current that takes you out though, so be prepared for a long tiring swim back to the beach. There is nothing here on this beach except for a few vendors that set up tents for the day. No bathroom.

Although there is very little coral here, the rock faces are alive with a wide variety of fish so the snorkeling is very good. The water is warm and the beach pristine. The fish community is very active and a delight to watch. We even had a Manta Ray swim underneath us.

We visited chachacual as part of a boat tour of the Huatulco Bays. We had planned to do some snorkelling but unfortunately, water conditions weren't great on the day we were there. The water was cloudy, and we ended up just swimming to the beach. It's a beautiful beach, the sand s very fine and soft. The waves are quite... More
