Also known as Watling Island, it is part of the Bahamas archipelago. It is famous for its varied marine life and reef corals and there are many excellent diving spots.

Around one thousand lucky people live on San Salvador and although the main industry is tourism, the island is not crowded with tourists. On the south shore of the island, you'll discover a white sandy beach. But the best part that you'll probably find yourself alone. A few steps in the warm water and you'll see some of the most incredible coral gardens ever.
