It is common to see fishermen walking through Holbox Village with their catch of the day or carrying their nets. The streets of Holbox Island are made of white sand, common of Caribbean islands, and there are very few cars. Holbox is considered a virgin tourist destination because very few outsiders visit the island. In spite of Holbox' natural beauty, inaccessibility has left it unspoiled by mass tourism.  Holbox, it is said, was inhabited by eight Maya families until the late 19th century, when it began to be settled by pirates who would come to replenish their water supplies from the spring-fed freshwater lagoon on the neighbouring islet of Yalahau. The town has a permanent population of about 1,600 “and just three policemen”, people would tell us, proof of how unusually safe it is for a Mexican beach town.
