Go with a wide angle lens

For some silly reason, I left my wide angle lens behind that day. This is *the* place to be if you want a great image of both volcanos in one picture... and have a wide angle... read more

Super cool sandbar going perpendicular from the shore out into the lake. It functions as a beach and is also a really great walking and photo opportunity if not crowded. Absolutely worth a visit.

So recognising that this narrow spit of land, caused by water currents is actually quite amazing, however, this is one phenomenon, that could be seen in only a few minutes. Do not plan your whole day around this attraction.

If you are looking for a place to have a sunset beach picnic then look no further! You've found it! The natural sandbar extends way off shore which makes for a nice walk in black sand when the water is low. Even high water (rainy season) doesn't effect the views!

For some silly reason, I left my wide angle lens behind that day. This is *the* place to be if you want a great image of both volcanos in one picture... and have a wide angle lens. We didn't use the beach for any swimming or relaxing, were just hoping for the view, and it was worth the $1 admission!

We were expecting a long narrow sand strip in the middle of the lake but the lake was to high so there was maybe 20 meters of this strip so i guess it loses from the effect, could be amazing though if it was 1 km as it should.

One of my "must seen" places in ometepe! Its amazing how this two volcanos connect through a thin line of sand 👌🏻 my advice is... Come when before or after summer cuz the lake tends to dry up.

A steep but quick hike up to the statue gives you amazing views over the town. Take up a few beers for a beautiful sunset.

I've been to PJM several times. It's a great place to have a picnic lunch, church service or hang out on the beach. There is a small snack bar there, so it's nice to get a Toña and relax. Walking out to the small sandbar is fun and sometimes feels like you are walking on water. There are also wonderful... More

We did 2 trips attempting to find the entrance to this landmark. There are no signs. Finally, after asking 5 locals, the last one said there's a very huge prominent tree that looks like it's about to fall, that's where the road is to punta jesus maria. I highly recommend going right before sunset. Some amazing photo opportunities here. See... More

A around 4 km. walk from Moyogalpa or also easy to reach by bike or motorbike. Around 17.30/ 18.00 you can see a nice sundown from this point on the island of Ometepe.
