Looking for a chill beach to take a book and read? Learn to surf or catch some waves in this lovely bay? Do not miss Playa Carrizalillo! Be ready to walk down a series of stone stairs and save some energy to walk up!

We spent at least part of 3 of our 4 beach days in Puerto Escondido here. The ocean is warm and the colors are more vibrant than a lot of Pacific beaches are. Great to hang out all day, enjoy the water, and just chill.

It pretty much very hot from 11am till 4pm so grab one of the lounge chairs and umbrellas. Drinks and food are a bit pricey so you can bring some or at least water yourself. You can rent a surfboard or get a lesson, sometimes...More

Went to this beach a few times during a surf camp. Very relaxed and quiet. Good for families. No loud annoying beach clubs. While there is still an active surf here it is smaller than the other local beaches.

Our kids 7and 11 took surf lessons here and the waves are perfect for the beginner. The beach is quaint and casual and away from the hustle of the main beach. We loved this beach.

We went and took our first surf lesson then enjoyed a fruit plate for breakfast. The area is nice but busy and not for long beach walks but watching the surfing is very enjoyable.
