Playa Blanca, Boyaca

(4.4/5 based on 110 reviews on the web)
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. By using our Boyaca vacation builder, you can arrange your visit to Playa Blanca and other attractions in Boyaca.

  • Is a pleasant beach of sand white and water ice, if you is a brave can enter to swim, I it did and think that I removed some ten years of over. It is very well maintained, it has a large parking lot, you only pay if you are in vehicle, and pay only for the right to parking, no matter how much time is. Is a place very clean, watched to the personal of security calling the attention to some tourists that left his Tin of beer in the beach (that shame, why some Colombian are as well), has a restaurant with a food delicious, with prices between them ten thousand and thirty thousand pesos (had read that not was good, but I that have a palate demanding) (, I ate more delicious and big trout that has tested) is variety, and above all a warm place where guard, because it is an ice cream place, especially after a soaking in ice water. Matter if you don't want to enter the restaurant, there are several booths where you find several options, these if seemed me expensive for what it offered.

  • I don't know if it was by the day, but we were a Sunday and the number of people was impressive, no no room for parking. They charged the entrance by car and still not prevented that being full continue entering cars. By the way who charged the entrance were not official persons, it seems more people who organize and profit. Many people usurping of all space making lunch and bonfires. Missing a lot control by any authority. It is a pity because before it was not so. The truth were not even 15 minutes because they do not feel well or quiet or to taste.

  • The water is cold, but the scenery is beautiful! And it is a nice trip to get there. It is ok for young children or the elderly.  more »
