Playa Blanca, Boyaca
(4.5/5 based on 90+ 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.

  • It is the beach of the 'boyacos', a natural Beach located in the Laguna de Tota at 3,100 meters. A destination that is worth knowing by the richness of its landscapes. There are can play volleyball-Beach, ride in moto aquatic or in boat, walk to the surroundings, etc. We recommend going very well warm and if you go on a particular vehicle, it can be up to very close to the edge of the beach (charge 3 thousand pesos) or if they prefer to walk can leave the car at the edge of the main road. If you are of those who like to know the towns and some of its people, culture, tradition, I recommend making the following path, enter Sogamoso > Aquitaine (try the trout Rainbow) > Playa Blanca (be there while consider) and continue towards Tota > Cuitiva > Iza (desserts) > Sogamoso. For accommodation, in the municipalities in question there are several alternatives; Iza, however, could be more welcoming. Recommended for a family plan or with friends.

  • I have been able to visit this place at least a three times and it never ceases to amaze me. It is hard to believe that so much beauty can exist. The view is ihermosa. The only thing to improve is that there is only a restaurant with a not-very-good note. It is true that it would not be appropriate to mobbing the place of trade, but have at least two good choices would be enough. They have com ample parking spaces. Entrance to the beach: $3500 COP per vehicle.

  • A beautiful landscape, not even anything with a Lake at 3000 meters of altitude, traveling the waters and see the different landscapes that brings with it is spectacular
