The photos on this page begin at the Río Coyula valley and continue to the east.

Playa Ixtapa

To reach Playa Ixtapa by land, follow the dirt road south that intersects the coastal highway (200) at the western end of the Huatulco airport near the turnoff to Santa María Huatulco. The beach faces directly onto the ocean so can be very dangerous for swimmers. The beach is about a mile in length with sloping fine white sand, and strong waves.
