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.

The Area's Beaches

There are an abundance of beaches to visit on the island. If you prefer having a lot of room around you, you may be pleasantly surprised, some of these beaches are relatively secluded and lightly used.

Grotto Beach

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

Another alternative worth considering is Bonefish Bay. Bonefish Bay is accessible right off Queen's Highway. Just find parking along the main road near Club Med and make your way to the shore.

Grotto Beach: The beach forms into a point, with a thick stretch of white sand leading to calm deep blue waters.
