White-sand beaches are most appreciated when they are clean. In Huatulco we have 9 bays and 36 dream beaches, each of which offer different shades of water and different textures of sand. Most are surrounded by the vegetation typical in the south, including caducifolious forest, organ pipe cactus, mangroves, prickly pear, mango trees, and more.
We depart from the main bay of Santa Cruz and we stop at the lighthouse along the scenic road. We continue until we reach the path that will lead us to this virgin beach. We will watch birds along the way and observe the vegetation endemic to the south of Mexico. Our guide give us instructions and provide us accessories needed for the activity. At the end of our work, we can cool off with a water, soft drink, and fresh seasonal fruits to top off our energy. Then, you can swim in the crystal-clear waters of this virgin beach. The place is gorgeous, so make sure to snap some pictures. This beach has been recognized by the International Clean Beaches Committee, Green Globe, and Earth Check.
