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.

  • I really liked the place, it's something you not expect to see in the interior of the country. Nice, friendly although a bit full on weekends, is can stroll in boat on the Lake for $10,000 per person, you can use the beach and enter the water even if it is very cold, on top before going down to the beach you can buy drinks since it is less congested and the use of the bath is best. Preferred to eat the typical rainbow trout of the place average cost $25,000

  • It is a beach at the Tota Lake, beautiful place, I recommend go well sheltered, it is too cold, and water is also very cold, although some people get to the Lake, there are water activities such as travel by boat.
