We stopped here on our way around the island and the waves were big enough to surf. There was a lot of seaweed but it's an ocean and there are no resorts on that side. There is no cell service even! Worth stopping at least...More

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.
