Playa Blanca, Boyaca

4.4
#1 of 11 in Outdoors in Boyaca Department
Tread on the soft white sand and dip your toes in the waters of Lake Tota at Playa Blanca. At 3,015 m (9,892 ft) above sea level, this ranks as the highest beach in the northern hemisphere and one of the highest in the world. It enjoys popularity among visitors for extreme motor sports. If you're not one of them, you can take a boat tour out on the lake for a little local history of the place, which is surrounded by a forest preserve. Bring a warm layer to combat the cooler climate here. While you may not get too much sunbathing in, the views of the surrounding green hills compensate. Try the fish at the nearby restaurant.

  • It is a place with a beautiful landscape. They can be multiple activity with friends or family, such as hiking, riding horse or ride by boat. There is also space for camping. It is worth to see it. I recommend arriving early in the morning (9 am) because then is congested enough

  • This place is incredible, a beautiful beach of white sand in a high Andean lagoon. Really a beautiful and beautiful destination. The views across the road are beautiful and the location is perfect to disconnect from the world.

  • If you doubt a very fantastic and amazing place, were there with my partner camping and allowed us to be close to the lagoon in a place where you could see the Sunrise with an incredible view, the restaurant despite the fact that is little capacity is very pleasant and delightful AC mass, I asked a tongue in sauce and without doubt would ask for it. The best time to go is during the week and in the low season. Super recommended
