A true natural wonder, Playa Escondida (Hidden Beach) also known as Playa del Amor (Love Beach) is a magnificent sight to behold.
A golden cavern with crystalline waters, it's completely invisible from the outside, and can only be accessed by kakaying or swimming though a water tunnel linking the beach to the Pacific. You'll find this incredible spot on the uninhabited Marieta Islands, located 22 nautical miles west of Puerto Vallarta by Banderas Bay. These protected verdant isles were formed by underwater volcanic eruptions, now forming a national park that's a haven for flora and fauna as it is for taking a dip.
This golden cave beach can only be accessed through a long water tunnel that links it to the Pacific, adding to its mysterious allure.
Keep in mind that Playa del Amor has become a popular tourist attraction with tour companies providing daily excursions to the islands. Therefore, it would be wise to inform your crew during your Mexico yacht charter ahead of time about your preferences for visiting, as they can ensure you visit at a time outside of peak hours.
