Fodor's Expert Review Playa Puerto Angelito

Puerto Escondido Beach–Sight

This lovely cove is home to both the eponymous beach as well as equally lovely Playa Manzanillo. Taxis will drop you off near the white sand, where the shallow depth of the water gives it a luminous, green-blue tint. Things get quite crowded on holidays and weekends, plus the boats moored close to shore can sometimes shrink the available swimming area and sully the waters. There's a walkway to Playa Manzanillo at the western end of the beach. While swimming, beware of water taxis and skiffs. Amenities: toilets; water sports; food and drink; parking (no fee). Best for: swimming.
