Nubesidup is one of the smaller and more tranquil islands to visit in San Blas and a nice option for people looking to just relax in a quieter surrounding. It offers a beautiful white sand beach, perfect for lazing in the sun with a book or having a swim. The island is covered in thin grass with hammocks to lay around. There is usually no more than 20 people staying on the islands at any given time.
