Tangolunda is Huatulco’s most exclusive bay and the majority of its beaches are accessible only to resort guests. Independent travelers can spend a day at Playa Arrocito or Playa Rincon Sabroso; the former has gentle waves and some shade, and is easily accessible by car. A section of Playa Tangolunda is also open to the public and offers water sports facilities.
