Description

iOverlander cannot verify if wild camping is permitted at this location. It is your responsibility to verify local laws or obtain consent before staying the night.

About 8mi north of Puerto Escondido. There are no signs but using Maps.me or Google Maps, you'll turn off Hwy 200 at Las Tres Palmas then follow the dirt road (good condition for all vehicles) to the coast. You can park an RV or campervan along the access road behind the low vegetated sand dunes (~600 ft from the ocean). We arrived just before sunset and drove our 4Runner across the sandy patches of the dunes to tent camp closer to the beach. It's a long, beautiful beach with no hotels, restaurants, or any structures nearby. There were only a few locals playing in the waves but they left after sunset. Awesome.

Latest Check-Ins

We spent a couple of nights here at the beginning of covid pandemia. Very quiet place, only locals coming and going.

Stayed here in front of the turtle hatchery. Beautiful beach. Not a soul in sight during the day. A few locals fishing at sunset. Loved it!

Didn’t see a restaurant. Definitely starting to build some sort of hotel.

Enjoy this beach all to yourself 🌞

Beautiful spot on the beach. There is also a small restaurant starting up although they didn’t cook when we were there. Relaxing under the palapa and having the beach to ourselves was really great. Definitely recommend. You don’t need 4x4 just stay on the harder sand. We left because we needed a bathroom and more groceries.

We didn’t go all the way to the GPS coordinates. We parked at the first entrance to the beach (turtle hatchery). It is more exposed but we didn’t want to risk getting stuck.

We drove down the next morning and found it would have been no problem, and was very nice with the palapas and palms.

Locals said it was very safe and tranquil, and they were right!

Also heard that condos or hotels will be built in this area ...but by the looks of it, it will be a while.

Nice beach frequented by locals on weekends, we camped by the two small huts where a group of young people were hanging out until late, they were quiet and friendly. If you are into surfing, waves are all over the place and not good for that.

Great spot for us!! Hardly any bugs and a long beautiful beach. The locals were out fishing and sunbathing until the sun went down. 4 wheelers running up and down the beach all night long, but never bothered us.

Good free spot.
Some locals by day and nobody at night. Very calm !
Unfortunately some plastic bottles too...
The gps point is not very accurate, so continue 200m further.

as described below. Very cool beach and lagoon. we got into the lagoon to take a fresh water dip and saw a few locals walking in it to fish. An american went to the beach and told us to be careful with crocodiles. didnt see them, who knows, so thats a thing, maybe. a local told us owners of that property will start construction of hotels, condos, and housing soon. cant confirm.
very relaxed though and away from the riff raff. don't get off the the road though not even a foot unless you have 4x4. we got stuck for a day and a half but made the best of it.
