Manzanillo del Mar, Cartagena

1.0
#5 of 6 in Beaches in Cartagena District
Experience authentic Caribbean Colombia at Manzanillo del Mar, a peaceful beach in a working-class neighborhood.

Restrooms aren't what most Westerners are used to, and many restaurants are simply wooden shacks. To visit Manzanillo del Mar on your trip to Cartagena, use our Cartagena day trip tool .

Bad is the only place in the world where they leave comes to an end the beach in favor of a trade. The beach as it's over.

  • If you are in Cartagena and want to spend a relaxing day at the beach Manzanillo is the right choice, away from the crowds on the beaches of Bocagrande and no vendors that are disruptive. There's some kids that you can bring lunch to the beach on the cheap. The fish is very good. The sea and the beach are not that great
