Came by and wonder why locals take photos of the beach. Turns out there is a plague that represents the 1st sunlight that hit the island right there on the 1st Mayan year. Amazing story.

This beach was on the wild side of the island and it is definitely worth the car ride. There are a few chairs to relax but overall, it is a pristine deserted beach. We had the whole place to ourselves while there!

This side of the island is a different experience than the hustle and bustle of the city. The ocean is gorgeous and so relaxing. The beach is so clean.

The beach is beautiful. It is secluded and very quiet. White sand and clear seas. Well worth a visit.

We were looking for a nice beach to spend Sunday afternoon. San Miguel's small rolling waves, bright blue ocean and tranquility convinced us it was an ideal spot. Less than a dozen tourists or locals accompanied us. A lifeguard kept close watch on swimmers and...More
