Cacaluta Bay – Huatulco, Oaxaca

Cacaluta Bay Huatulco Oaxaca Mexico

Cacaluta Bay

Cacalutla Bay is one of the larger Bays in the Bahías de Huatulco, it is also one of the least inaccessible. The two pristine beaches that constitute the bay are only accessible by boat (recommended) or by hiking for 20 minute through woodland. The sacrifice is worth it however, and it is completely conceivable that you could find yourself alone on the enormous Cacalutla beach. If you are going to confront the inaccessibility problems make sure that you take your own water, shade and anything else that you may need. Cacaluta bay was also the location where the extremely successful Mexican film ‘Y tu mamá también’ was filmed.

Cacaluta Bay has two pristine beaches:

Cacalutla Bay is located in Huatulco Oaxaca, Mexico

Cacaluta Beach

Cacaluta beach is huge; it is around a kilometre in length without anything in sight apart from the inviting water of the sea, the green vegetation of the wood and the soft white sand stretching out onto the horizon. If you are going to swim at Cacaluta beach you need to be a little bit careful because the waves are strong and if you get into trouble you are quite literally on your own.

Arroyo Beach

Arroyo beach in contrast to Cacaluta beach is quite small although it is just as pretty and solitary as Cacalutla. The waves on Arroyo beach however are gentler making it a better option for less able swimmers.
