As you drive around the island, this is a must stop beach. We had the entire place to ourselves for a couple of hours. The snorkeling is average but the water is amazing. The feeling of solitude is something you cannot find at a lot of other places. Enjoy it.

I did not swim as I was bicycling the Island by myself, but found it to be very pretty. I enjoyed my bicycle ride, stopped and took picture of school children waiting for their bus. And Loved meeting Iris who owns the little San Salvador Gift shop where I found nice refrigerator magnets and post cards, which Club Med lacked.

Again, an obligatory stop on your drive 'round the island. Dig your toes into the sand and feel the warm, gin-clear water. heaven!

I really enjoyed my walk on the beach every day and the chairs are very clean and confortable. We enjoyed the time we spent at the beach as a couple and would like to return as soon as possible, our time spent at Columbus was memorable and we telling all our friend how it was magical.
