Playa Barra de Colotepec, Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca
To get to Playa Barra de Colotepec from Playa Zicatela, look for the trailhead at the very southern end of Zicatela. There, a steep trail leads up the face of the cliff. At the top the trailhead continues along the bluffs for about 50 meters before heading downhill to the waters edge among the rocks. The beach is off to the left. During high tide it is often not passable because of rocks jutting out. Check the tide tables and only try accessing the beach during when the tide is not high. Either way, be careful here because the occasional rogue wave could come along and slam you into the rocks. Check surf forcast for surf conditions and tides.
