Playa del Amor
One of the region’s smaller beaches, Playa del Amor, or Lover’s Beach, is a great addition to any itinerary. Both secluded and private, it is surrounded by high cliffs covered in jungle sweeping down to golden sands and calm shallows known for their swimming, snorkelling and diving.
The rocks on either side of Playa del Amor are home to all manner of marine species, while the beach itself forms a rough rectangle of sand of medium grade roughly 50 metres long by 40 metres wide. It is reached via a narrow footpath through the native flora. Look out for the large thatched structure which marks the approach.
On the beach are a couple of simpler thatched huts which serve as refreshment stands and gear rentals during the peak season. They provide the only real shade. To be certain of their availability, you should bring anything you need with you to Playa del Amor.
Panga boats take visitors out on whale watching tours and game fishing for tarpon and tuna from Playa del Amor, which lies to the east of the much better-known Playa Zipolite. It is also a popular beach with nudists.
