Enjoyed a short stay here and enjoyed some sea food. Time was not on our side. We would have liked to have stayed longer. Next time

If you are looking for a "white" sandy beach you can't go wrong here. It is primitive meaning that there are no bathrooms and a few huts for shade. If you want to get away from the city then this is the place to go....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.

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!!
