Hidden Beach in Marieta Islands, Mexico Located in the Marieta Islands, about 20 nautical miles from Puerto Vallarta, lies an idyllic beach paradise hidden underneath a hole in the ground. Called the “Hidden Beach” or “Playa de Amor” (Beach of Love), this one-of-a-kind natural wonder has remained untouched by human hands for many years. Within its natural cavernous shell, crystal-clear turquoise waters peacefully lap against its powdery white shores, out of sight and out of reach from the rest of the world. Image source However despite its fame, the Hidden Beach still remains unsullied due to the difficulty of getting to it. The origins of this secluded marvel comes as a surprise. Image source These islands known as the “Galapagos of Mexico,” are in themselves an ecological gem. Due to its tropical climate, the Marieta Islands, including the Hidden Beach, enjoy 12 months of sunny days.
