Playa Piedras Coloradas, Las Grutas

4.1
#2 of 7 in Beaches in Province of Rio Negro
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. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Las Grutas holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Playa Piedras Coloradas and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

    The place has a nice environment. Being the first alternative (due to proximity) of the Central beaches of Las Grutas, you also receive enough tourists. I've gone, but personally, I prefer other places more rustic and quiet surrounding.

    Even though it was fully closed the place is paradise. It should take into account that the tide rises very fast.

    It is a unique landscape. Highly recommended. The beach is very clean and you can appreciate the flora and fauna. Divine
