Playa Blanca, Isla Baru

2.0
#1 of 26 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.

  • The beach was almost without sand, due to a hurricane that took the beach though. Another bad thing is the amount of annoying vendors, offering you everything. Terrible food and expensive anyway not recommended!!

  • The beach is beautiful. The precarious infrastructure. For all you will want to collect. Recommendation: Walking the beach and ask prices of folding chairs, then is can haggle where more you like with a general idea. There are places to spend the night. If you go with the excursion, in general includes lunch which is quite well. You can be accessed by boat or by bus (take into account that leave embarked from Cartagena port right is paid, and is not economical). Sellers are insistent insopotablemente. The Guide stressed several times that the beach was public and that we do not lose sight of our belongings.

  • Very good choice, stunning water... a little precarious installations. But you can enjoy a lot
