Punta Jesus Maria, Isla de Ometepe

3.6
#3 of 9 in Beaches in Rivas Department
Once a natural dock for indigenous fishers, Punta Jesus Maria now simply sits as a narrow strip of land formed by rising and lowering tides. Take in a panoramic view of the two neighboring volcanos Maderas and Concepcion in the background. Shady trees await in abundance at the nearby beach, which also features calm shallow waters, great for swimming or kayaking. The attraction is rather isolated, so don't expect many tourist facilities. Pack your own lunch and drinks.

  • The trip from Altagracia by bike along the landing strip is amazing. Best photos with a perfect view on the volcano  more »
  • The most amazing and wonderful sunset in my whole life. I have seen there 3 sunsets and swum. It was sick!!! You can rent a motorcycle or take a tuk tuk or hitchhike like me to moyogalpa.  more »
  • On the island of Isla de Ometepe (which sure is a must during a tour of Nicaragua) we visit Punta Jesus Maria, a narrow sand bank, formed by water currents and sediments. During the dry season the bar more than 1 km away and you can walk out with splashing water on both sides.
