A Look At The 3 Most Kid Friendly Beaches in Huatulco Mexico
While every beach in Huatulco is breathtaking and unique, some are better for family fun than others.
Out of the 36 beaches in Huatulco it is hard to choose a favorite, or even narrow it down to 3 or 4. But when speaking with parents traveling with their kids, the question always arises; What is the best beach for the kids?
Here are the top three kid friendly beaches along with a few other suggestions for how to make the best of your beach vacation with the kids.
This is one of the most popular beaches in Huatulco; offering small seafood restaurants scattered along the beach and calm water for swimming. This kid friendly beach is a great place for sandcastles and photo ops of the kids buried in the sand. You’ll see lots of local families here with their kids. Bring your beach ball or buckets and shovels and spend a great day with the family.
Santa Cruz Beach
Equally as popular as Maguey, Santa Cruz is an easily accessible beach in Huatulco offering perfect water conditions nearly year round. While this beach can be a little crowded, it is a great place to people watch, sunbathe, and let the kids run around and swim. The water is generally very calm and great for swimming. There are plenty of activities like banana boats, jet skis and kayaks to keep the kiddos entertained!
One of the MOST beautiful bays in Huatulco, Tejoncito was just recently developed. A high-end residence club called Celeste now surrounds this small and protected bay, but it doesn’t necessarily take away the virgin beach feel. The white sand and crystalline waters, will make you question if you’re on the Pacific or Caribbean. This kid friendly beach is great for swimming, floating, frolicking, etc. The kids never want to get out of the water, because it’s just that good. If you’re staying in one of the villas in Conejos, ask if they have a membership to Celeste. If not, the public access is a bit of a trek but well worth it when you get there. Bring your picnic and beach chairs!
If you’re willing to take a boat ride, or a half an hour drive down a dirt road, San Agustin, is also worth checking out. This popular bay offers great snorkeling conditions for the water babies and a truly beautiful beach.
Be careful in Tangolunda and Chahue, both of these beaches have a pretty strong undertow and can be challenging even for the best of swimmers. These beaches do however have great beach clubs with swimming pools or hotel amenities to enjoy, so for some, enjoying the waves from the swimming pool or sundeck may be the way to go!
