Santiago is really a protected reserve and largely undeveloped fishing village down the country's far western coast. The best thing about the spot is its isolation and pure beauty; it's flanked by wide, nearly deserted, sandy beaches and mangrove-filled estuaries where majestic white egrets glide low on the water. And the entire place sits immediately when in front of a miles-long distinct volcanoes that seem to from the
palm tree-lined estuary shores. You can fish, swim, surf, paddle, spot sea turtles laying their eggs, or perhaps do nothing and like the view.
Playa El Espino, El Salvador
A wide, gorgeous beach which is splendidly isolated on weekdays and alive with beachgoers on weekends, Playa El Espino is gaining a reputation as considered one of El Salvador's best places to throw down a towel and relish the sun, sea, and sand.
Playa Maculis, El Salvador
This is considered one of El Salvador's hidden gems: an extremely private 1.5km-long (1 mile) crescent-shaped beach that is certainly dotted with some houses and much of trees. At either end, two rocky points jut out to the sea. This protects the waters in the lateral current that may be so dangerous for the El Salvadoran coast.
