OVERVIEW

Islas Marietas are a marine park and UNESCO site with an extraordinary story. 

The Marietas islands are a small group of volcanic islands in the Banderas bay. Never inhabited, these islands were originally used as a military testing zone, and were periodically by the Mexican army with weapons and bombs. 

In the late 1960s, scuba diver Jacques Cousteau led an international drive to protect the Marietas islands and ban military activity in the area. Thanks to their efforts, all human activity on the islands was banned and they are now protected by the Mexican government and UNESCO.

THE HIDDEN BEACH

The hidden beach is a feat of nature only accessible by swimming through the rocks.

Created by erosion and weaknesses in the rock, the hidden beach is a circular sandy beach in the middle of Marietas island, cut off on all sides by the rock.

You can only access the hidden beach by swimming through the rocks (with our guide). The Marietas are a well-protected national park and we are allowed 30 minutes to enter the water, visit the beach and return to our boat. Plenty of time to take some stunning photos.
