Playa Blanca, Boyaca
(4.4/5 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.

  • The site is very nice, the entrance to the parking costs 3,500 (1, 20Us), but you can leave the car outside and walk, the restaurant is not very good, the atmosphere is cool

  • I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to visit this place, after all there are many better beaches in Colombia, but it is a nice place to spend a day. There is a restaurant that serves the local ...  more »
  • It is certainly a magical, cosy and quiet place. Playa Blanca is an incredible place to spend with family and friends, it is very easy to get, from bogota, you can go to the north portal and on the highway to take a bus "super direct" to the municipality of sogamoso Boyaca in for a value of $20,000 (libertadores or concorde) approx. 3 hours of travel. Arriving at the terminal of sogamoso, take a bus towards playa blanca (red cootracero) worth $6,500 and let you just at the entrance, during the tour raisins by the municipalities of Iza and Cuitiva Tota. Arriving to playa blanca if you go without car entry has no cost. Here begins the good, the beach has a great extension to walk, sit in the sand or enjoy the view from the top of a mountain. On the beach there is a restaurant (good but a little expensive), the entrance to baths is $500 and different way to enjoy as moto them water that cost $40,000 15 min or boat ride through $10,000 there is 30 min. If you're going camping area is very good it has enough space and you can rent tent ($25,000) and buy firewood ($5,000). Evenings at all are very pretty, starry, that if it's quite cold. Recommended restaurant the lookout on the beach 2, as well, say nice and cheap don't let go and enjoy your delicious super food, attention and great view. Essential, warm and comfortable clothing, comfortable shoes, and above all eager to live a beautiful adventure. In conclusion, visit the lagoon and white beach is a great plan.
