Playa Blanca, Isla Baru

2.2
#1 of 25 in Parks in Cartagena District
Sun, snorkel, or simply relax at Playa Blanca, where turquoise waters, soft white sand, and lush coastal foliage attract scores of tourists and day-trippers. Kick back at one of the local beach bars with a bite to eat or a drink; alternatively, try buying some fresh oysters from the vendors who frequent the sandy stretch. Afterwards, grab your snorkeling gear and explore the underwater environment of coral and fish. However, be sure to keep an eye out for the jellyfish that frequent the area.

  • We reach Playa Blanca thinking that it was a beautiful place, we have a crowded beach of people, if you want to shadow must pay, loud music, people screaming, not will as he will have been here before but today there is nothing, just nice water color. Vendors harassing you, much poverty, no cleaning. Disappointing. Obviously, is the poverty of the country, the real, and not the luxuries of the resorts that are a fantasy for the tourists.

  • The beach is beautiful, sand White Sea of colors, is a paradise, pity it is very crowded, we did a tour and lunch was not very good I recommend carrying water and mecatos, lightweight luggage because you have to walk. But it is worth.
