About a mile East of Viewpoint at Puerto Angel is Playa Estacahuite (ay-stah-kah-WEE-tay). This tight cove shelters you from the currents of the Pacific Ocean and has great little coral nooks making it great for snorkeling and swimming. This small 300 foot beach has basic amenities in the form of a pair of palapa restaurants perched picturesquely above the beaches that provide food and drinks.
Playa Estacahuite is located 200 metres from the Viewpoint condo and Puerto Angel. Take highway 175 toward Pochutla for a 1/4 mile and look for the sign that says Casa Bichu and head to the end of the road. You can get there by taxi or on foot via the dirt road that forks right off the highway.
