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.

  • To access this beach takes approx. 2-3 hours des Cartagena Center. My Council is hire a tour, since if one is adventure (as did I) is can turn a little stressful deal with them sellers for access to the parking (in my case practically seemed that I were to steal because is piled in the route some 15 people trying to of stop the car and until throwing in the front of the auto). Except that small detail, the place is cute and the beach is nice but for comments that I had done something a little better imagine... There are many sellers of everything, clothes, food, toiletries and more food. To access the site, the entrance is from Earth so if it rains should have in mind that the place is filled with mud and wells and then to get to the beach down the stones that form a kind of staircase.
