Puerto Escondido, Mexico

Surfers have gathered on the Mexican pipeline for decades. But in the last few years this strip of Pacific coast has welcomed a cluster of smart restaurants and independent hotels bringing the attention of Puerto (as it’s known by locals) to a new crowd.


Playa Zicatela is one of the most famous beach breaks in the world but the Mexican pipeline can be pretty unpredictable – so this is not a beach for beginners. For the ultimate wave watching, visit Zicatela before 10am between May and August when southerlies power up the shore breaks and bring the pros into town. Head to the southern end on the point break for more manoeuvrable swells; or join the surf schools around the headland at Playa Carrizalillo – where two separate breaks meet in the middle of a striking golden bay.

Hotel Escondido

Our high-waist bikini is perfect for breezing in and out of the beachside concrete, thatched shacks, each with their own plunge pool. You’ll enjoy mingling with Mexico-City-based creatives who pile in on weekends. Throw on the Misty Towelling Set to lounge in before heading out to creative studio Casa Wabi, next door, where artists in residence spin crockery for the hotel restaurant.

Kakurega Omakase

Owned by Hotel Escondido, this Japanese restaurant serves an epic 10-course tasting menu. Fish is locally sourced and pristinely presented as elegant nigri and sashimi. With just 12 seats at the bar, it’s a hard table to book. Pro Tip: Add a bold print for a pop of colour for an effortless, chic look. Our Houndstooth Spring Suit pairs perfectly with a solid layer, like the Track Shorts.

Sala Agua

Young people flock here in the day to snag a cabana and sip coconut water out of their shells, but at sundown it has some of the best views across the Pacific. Pull up a stool on the sand and relax to the strum of live guitar music.


Surfers wind up here at the end of the day and feast on shrimp tacos. Overlooking perfect views of Carrizalillo beach, which means there’s always a party to start on the terrace – so you’ll need a day-to-night look. Try the Hillingdon Reversible Bikini, which can be worn in vibrant orange or flipped to exotic metallic silver for a starry night on the beach.
