Playa Piedras Coloradas, Las Grutas
(4.1/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Wide and shallow stretches of sand alongside jagged Precambrian rock formations set a peaceful and tranquil scene at Playa Piedras Coloradas. While nearby beaches attract a noisy hostel crowd, this beach offers its own beach library where you can borrow a book, sit back, and read with the soothing sound of the waves in the background. The red rocks that dot the beach are more than five million years old, and provide ample opportunity to go hunting for fossils and petrified oysters. The shallow beachfront also attracts sandboarders- rent a board here and try it yourself. Using our international travel planner, Las Grutas attractions like Playa Piedras Coloradas can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
