Playa Mermejita

by Brent May





Playa Mermejita is a small beach area in the central part of the Oaxaca coast, west of San Agustinillo and Mazunte. It is bordered on its east side by Punta Cometa, the southern most point in the Mexican state of Oaxaca, and on its west side by  Ventanilla, a distinguished looking rock formation with a “ventana” or window in it which can be observed from several miles’ distance.

Playa Mermejita is popular for viewing sunsets over the ocean, a must do during your visit to the area. Take a picnic, have a long walk and watch the sun disappear into the Pacific. 

Mermejita is one of only two Oaxacan nesting locations for the rare leatherback turtle. The nearby Centro Mexicano de la Tortuga researches, breeds, and displays numerous varieties of live turtles and fish, and is working to bring this turtle back from the brink of extinction. The leatherback can live for 80 years and grow to a length of 9 feet.
