Create an itinerary including Playa Grande
A short walk out of the town, Playa Grande is a beach well-loved by the locals who flock to it during holidays. Backed by gentle, green hills, and lined with fine, white sand against emerald waters, this is a nice place to soaking up the rays. Reach the beach via an ecological path or by a quick boat trip. Take a dip in the clear water and top it off with a fresh catch served up by the many seaside restaurants. Plan to see Playa Grande and other attractions that appeal to you using our Taganga tour builder website.

  • The beach itself is nice (not spectacular, but nice anyway) and has potential. The biggest issue is that there is GARBAGE EVERYWHERE, specially all along the foot paths to go to the “secret beaches” that are 10-20 min away by foot. Another issue is that the entire beach has been occupied by people renting chairs—the problem is that they are seating plastic chairs, not sunbeds, so you won’t be able to lie down and relax—only sit.
  • Too many people, too much boats 🚤…don’t waste your time and money. Go to another beach. This one is cheaper go get, only 15000 round trip by boat. You can buy a ticket in Taganga beach.
