Each spanning about two to three miles of coastline, the beaches of San Salvador are often secluded and calm, making them perfect for families with children or those looking for a spot for a romantic adventure. Although all of the beaches on the island are beautiful on their own right, Sandy Point is one that has to be seen multiple times, because the color of the sand changes with the season.

There are a large number of beaches to visit on the island. If you're looking for a quiet getaway, you may be pleasantly surprised, several of the beaches are fairly secluded and free from development.

North Victoria Hill Beach: Gem colored waters that are almost unbelievably blue wash up onto the white sand beach of North Victoria Hill.

A second option that beach-goers can consider is Bonefish Bay. Three miles of fine white sand in front of Club Med make up Bonefish Bay. The almost neon turquoise waters are mesmerizing.
