Sun, snorkel, or simply relax at Playa Blanca, where turquoise waters, soft white sand, and lush coastal foliage attract scores of tourists and day-trippers. Kick back at one of the local beach bars with a bite to eat or a drink; alternatively, try buying some fresh oysters from the vendors who frequent the sandy stretch. Afterwards, grab your snorkeling gear and explore the underwater environment of coral and fish. However, be sure to keep an eye out for the jellyfish that frequent the area.

  • The water is nice but the place is rudimentary, not very clean and they try to charge us a simple ceviche 300usd! Nothing like the pictures we have seen. We should have stayed at our hotel beach...

  • It's a beautiful place, but no place for responsible tourism. Plastic and sigarettes everywhere. And coral gets destroyed by all the activities
  • Remember it's Colombia. Always negotiate a price before any services. Great relaxing water. All lounge chairs price is negotiable.
