Though all beaches are great, we favor those that offer some privacy.
Playa Del Amor or Hidden Beach is something special because it’s a piece of paradise hidden from the world by the rocks of the Marieta Islands in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Unless you know it’s there, it will be difficult to find this hidden beach. It can only be seen from above and access it through a water tunnel that connects it to the Pacific Ocean.
According to a rumor, the beach was created by bombing the region. The uninhabited Marieta Islands were the perfect site for military testing that Mexican government conducted in the early 20th century. It’s believed that one of the bombs created the crater that we know today as the Hidden Beach.
