Best Beach on San Salvador!
We loved our trip to San Salvador! The beaches are beyond ~ so pretty, great snorkeling right from the beach, miles to explore! And the best part? One of the very BEST beaches is right in front of the house (5 stars) ! We enjoyed so many swims. Our daughter even got to frolic with a pair of dolphins one evening - they were super curious and they followed her up and down the beach.
The house is basically appointed, with cooking utensils and pots and pans, spices, and other kitchen goods. The caretaker delivered a grill while we were there, but we couldn’t find charcoal on the island (I think Dorette’s is planning to stock some). We did encounter a few problems with the house itself, but Lori and Bill and their caretaker are working on improvements and I think they will be in place quickly. The rinse down shower off the deck was awesome and refreshing after the beach.
The stores are much more dependent on the boat than other islands we’ve been to - adds to the adventure. If Dorette’s has fresh bread or sweet pastries, buy them even if you don’t need them. SO GOOD. We had some trouble finding fish, check out the harbor in the late afternoon if you can’t find any.
What to do? Visit Grotto Bay - the snorkeling is amazing. Lots of fish, beautiful coral. Sandy Point - beautiful, huge beach. Some good shelling, and an AMAZING spot to watch the sunset. We even saw a green flash! Other beaches around the island will not disappoint, so explore and find them. We found great snorkeling to the north, right before the road turns to the right and heads into United Estates. Walk over the bluff and settle in for a beautiful day! The beach near the High School was super cool too - too murky for snorkeling while we were there, but I bet it’s awesome. The ruins are super for exploring and we loved the lookout for a great view. We had a great few hours poking around the ‘flats’ (take the road going out to the kite surfing inn, look for a pile of rocks on the right, follow the path out to the tidal pools). Go at lowish tide. Lots of cool creatures. The lighthouse was amazing. We were not brave enough to climb down into the cave, but if you bring a flash light, you should. Go through the gate in the wall and follow the path. Dripping stones was an interesting visit ... ran out of room! For more, visit the travel forum!
We booked this amazing placed house to celebrate our weeding and one more house to receive all our family.
Coming direct flight from Paris and Us everything was perfect.
Since the arrival to the departure we received an amazing assistance by the manager of the house Jackson Everette always available and helpful.
The house is right to an amazing beach. We feel very comfortable with all facilities and furnitures.
We are lucky thanks to our relationship in the island with the charming locals and club med we had everything to celebrate our weeding like a real star with all our family and friends in this paradise. We feel alone and very secured.
All of us are in love of this island and plan to come back again to find peace in this paradise island so beautiful most amazing beach in the world.
We fall in love in this island and get maried here.
Thank you mr Northrup your house is just charming and full of stories.
Best vacation ever
Booking was very easy and the owner provides very good information on traveling to San Salvador. Communication was very good throughout the entire process. You definitely want the truck (I wasn't aware it was an option, but it was waiting at the airport for me gassed and ready to go and the trip wouldn't have been the same without it). The house is wonderful and well equipped. The snorkel equipment and bikes are in good shape. I was able to bike the full distance around the island one morning, so the bike held up well (better than me). Good snorkeling right off the beach towards the rocks on the right (Grouper and Squirrelfish in abundance). Good snorkeling 5 minutes down the road at Grotto Beach (lots of parrotfish). Great snorkeling 10 minutes up the road at Columbus Landing (still not so thrilled about being stalked by a 4' barracuda, but he played nice). Wonderful sunsets. Very secluded. Only 2 other houses on the beach that I saw and we never had another person on the beach with us. Watch the sunset, make dinner, have a drink and lay in the hammock listening to the Jimmy Buffet cd's and the surf. Very nice. For the duration of the trip there was only 1 time there was a person other than myself and my wife on any of the beaches we visited (6). Dinner at Riding Rock was remarkable, I went in expecting pub food and ended up having a 4 star dinner with pineapple cheesecake to finish it off. Scuba is also available at Riding Rock. Dinner at the Paradis was a bit less formal, but very good as well. Large portions, good food and a lower cost, it also has wireless access and accepts credit cards (which is uncommon around the island). I honestly can't say enough about the setup. This island was by far the best place I have ever visited and I'm already looking for an excuse to go back. I would recommend 2 weeks next time as there is plenty to see and do and it's good to have a little more time in the middle to just relax. Thank you again, it was wonderful.
Unique and relaxing getaway
My husband and I are private pilots and love flying into San Salvador from Florida. (350 nautical miles off of Ft. Pierce FL) The blue water and sandy beaches on San Salvador are some of the best in the world. If you want to relax this is the place. If you want some of the best scuba diving in the Bahamas this is the place. We have seen Hammerhead sharks at 110 feet! Or just enjoy the snorkeling right off of the beach. It is a super romantic getaway or family vacation. There are plenty of things to do, including just soaking up the sun.
The Most Fabulous Island Vacation
We have had the opportunity to stay here several times, and the experience is always incredible. Whether we are vacationing for the peaceful seclusion and beautiful water, or the island adventures and up-beat gathering of friends and family, this is the place to do it.
The owners take great care in keeping the property and home in the cleanest condition. The house is well appointed with many soft beds, delightful music, and fine appliances to cook any kind of meal. It is convenient to get to from the mainland, very safe, and we have never met happier, more welcoming people than you will find on the island.
We treasure our time there, and recommend this amazing and special place to any of our friends.
