We rented a Jeep for the day and ended up on this beach. Probably the most beautiful beach I've ever seen. Not that busy. Lots of big waves rolling in.

Beautiful beach with pretty blue water. Playa de San Martin is located on the Atlantic side of the Island away from cruise ships, hotels and tourist. The beach is not overcrowded and beautiful. Be careful because the water is rough on this side of island.

The water was beautiful, the area was quiet so that made me happy. If you like nice quiet relaxation this is your place. Bar across the st. Good tequila. Perfect.

Rolling waves, white sands...great for a long stroll or just sitting and admiring the view. Careful if swimming as there are rip currents...otherwise a must visit. Beware of beach bar Sam Martin as they overcharge tourists and I mean by a lot!!

Playa de San Martin is far from San Miguel and the cruise terminal, so you need a car or moped to get there. We arrived later on a Saturday afternoon and most of those frolicking appeared to be locals. There are no palapas or palm...More

We rented scooters from San Miguel and headed over for the day - It was a bit further from the center of town than I anticipated - about 40 minutes so be prepared. We were going to eat here but a cruise ship tour unloaded...More

This was a stop that our guide suggested on our Private Jeep Tour. Yours eyes will see a piece of Mother Nature that only seeing is believing...words cannot describe what this picturesque beach looks like.
