Playa del Amor, Mexico

From series “Most Fabulous and Magic Beaches”
This beach is located on the Mexican island of Marieta. Playa del Amor can be considered one of the most amazing and unique in the world because of its special structure. Playa del Amor is often called the hidden beach. Really, it is almost completely hidden from prying eyes by a natural canopy. Marieta Island is uninhabited. It has been formed many hundreds of years ago by a volcanic activity.

Playa del Amor, Mexico The coastal part of the island is literally covered with a hollow shell. The unique Playa del Amor has formed in the place of the occasional crack in that shell. It's not so easy to find and reach this secluded beach. It's necessary to swim through the tunnel, which is the natural entrance to the cave. It is noteworthy, that a hundred years ago, the Mexican government used Marieta Island as a testing ground for military equipment tests.

The uniqueness and the beauty of these places were first appreciated by Jacques Cousteau. He managed to convince the authorities to stop the military experiments on the island. Today, this picturesque place houses a national park. It is famous not only for its unique beach, but also because of amazing nature. The island is home to rare species of birds. At the coast, you can see rare exotic fish and other marine life. Playa del Amor is very popular among fans of snorkeling. Its crystal clear water make it very convenient to enjoy the beauty of the underwater world. Next - Pfeiffer Beach
