Located at the tip of Barra de Santiago Peninsula, the big sand banks are created by the currents of the estuary by the mangrove behind it. It is one of the number one spots in El Salvador for birdwatching. The beaches are long and clean, and virtually deserted. A must for people who love nature.
To access by car take the coastal highway from Acajutla to the Guatemalan border and at KM 98.5 take the turnoff to the village Barra de Santiago. After 7 kms on a dirt road you reach the village, continue another 3 kms to the end of the road. Park car and walk 10-20 minutes along the beach to the tip of the peninsula. If you travel by bus there are 2 direct departures from Sonsonate (morning and afternoon) with bus #285 to the end stop at 35 Ave Sur. Then walk 3 blocks to the end of the road.Where to Stay
