More than just ‘Love Beach’

On May 9th, the Marietas Islands will close the popular ‘Love Beach’ for a environmental restoration project. In the past months a growing numbers of tourists have led to increased damage to the area. While the most popular of beaches will be closed, the islands will continue to offer a landscape of wildlife and beauty to tourists and locals alike.
