Hidden Beach Marieta Island
in Puerto Vallarta Mexico
Puerto Vallarta, , Riviera Nayarit
Playa Del Amor, more commonly known as the Hidden Beach, is a structure of one of the Marieta Islands, located west of PV, at the mouth of Banderas Bay. The Marieta Islands are an archipelago, a chain of islands that exist as a result of volcanic eruption. The islands themselves are natural wonders, but it was something else that caused the burrowed beach to be shown the light. The Hidden Beach is invisible from the outside, and is only accessible through a long water tunnel that links the beach to the Pacific Ocean. There is approximately six feet of space above water level, so visitors can arrive at the beach by swimming or kayaking. The islands are still uninhabited, but are frequently visited by tourists who come to enjoy the diverse marine wildlife and the unique tropical Eden of Playa Del Amor.
