Astonishing beach in a cavern

The most unusual beach so far we have found in Mexico, near the town of Puerto Valeyard, the Marietas Islands. The beach is very hard to see even from the air, because it is located in a cave, which has an oval hole in the top, like the opening of the stadium. It may seem quite hard to imagine and even more unusual to swim in the waters and lay on the sand of this beach, but it is a truly great place to spend you summer vacation.

There are only few places in the earth with soo virgin nature, like magnificent Maya Bay or unforgettable Cabo de Gata beach. The water of the river Koran, flowing through the limestone over thousands of years have brought travertine barriers.

Untouched natural balance

The name "Plitvice Lakes" was first recorded by the priest from Otočac Vukasovichem Dominic in 1777. April 8, 1949 Plitvice Lakes received a National Park status, and since 1979, the National Park Plitvice Lakes is included in the "World Heritage" list by UNESCO.

Prior to 1958, the park was not available for the tourists.

In the lakes of the park it is strictly forbidden to swim and even picnic, make fires, or to come with dogs. This is due to the strict order preservation of the natural balance, which for many years stood for the local ecology.
