El Salvador's beaches are among its top draws, and this is one of its best.
Vamos a la playa!
One of El Salvador's main draws for visitors is its Pacific Coast beaches, many of them within easy reach of San Salvador. The first is Playa Dorada at kilometre 91 of the coastal highway, a huge stretch of one of the best quality sandy playgrounds in the country, surrounded by woods that are great for a stroll. The waters themselves are top notch for snorkeling, with great underwater flora and fauna viewing at the offshore rocks, and the surfing here is considered some of the country's best.
