Playa Chahué — Bahía Chahué, Bahías de Huatulco, Oaxaca
Waves lapping gently against its steep, white, sandy shore, Playa Chahué, curving slightly, is nestled deep within Bahía Chahué, well protected from the powerful Pacific surf lying just outside the mouth of the bay.
If you're taking a bus or colectivo from La Crucecita, get off at the intersection of Blvd. Chahué and Blvd. Benito Juarez. Free public beach access is four blocks from the intersection. Walk one block south along Blvd. Chahue, it shrinks in size, but continues along the east side of the Banco Azteca. Take first left at and continue for two blocks, turning right at the Xquenda Huatulco Spa. From there, continue about 100 meters, until you reach the beach front. There, you'll find a guard station and bathrooms with showers (bathrooms MX$5, showers MX10).
