Hidden Beach Marieta Islands - the place that human beings have found out, which turns out to be a heaven
Mexico. March 14. UITV. The Marieta Islands are a group of small uninhabited islands a few miles off the coast of the state of Nayarit, Mexico, in federal waters 7.9 kilometres southwest of the peninsula known as Punta de Mita, in the municipality of Bahía de Banderas.
They are very popular tourist destinations because of the abundant marine life populations due to the islands being protected from fishing and hunting by the Mexican government.
You have to get a permit in order to explore this incredible location in Mexico, although the sights are well worth it.
Currently, the Mexican government allows only a few companies to go to the islands and allows the landing of passengers onto one secluded beach with the necessary permit from SEMARNAT.
From Punta de Mita, small boats do tours through the islands to see the wildlife of this region. From December to March gray and humpback whales can be observed that come from Alaska to give birth off the coast of Nayarit.

It has been estimated in studies carried out at the University of Guadalajara that the so-called "hidden beach" or the "love beach" can accommodate up to 116 visitors a day without degrading. The carrying capacity of the entire park is 625 visitors a day.
It is rumored that the hole that created the Hidden Beach was a result of deliberate bombings. The Marieta Islands have always been completely uninhabited, making them ideal sites for military testing by the Mexican government.
The islands are an hour long boat ride northwest from the coast of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. There are ample tour companies that provide day excursions to the Hidden Beach.
