Rocky Cay, San Andres Island

4.5
#4 of 47 in Things to do in San Andres Island
Gaze out over the multicolored waters at Rocky Cay, a small beach in the Caribbean. As you stand on the shore, notice the beach's distinctive shipwreck, close enough to swim to. Bring snorkeling gear to make the most of the colorful marine life swimming through the crystal clear waters, and take a pair of water shoes to protect your feet from the coral poking out of the sea floor. Keep an eye out for iguanas slinking around underneath the palms trees, just waiting to be photographed.

    The beach is mediocre, there are certainly more beautiful in the Caribbean, but perhaps not on San Andres.

    The beach has several bars and restaurants. I opted for the day use of restaurant Decameron. Paid 55,000 COP with lunch (11:00 at 2:00 pm), snack (14:30 at 5:00 pm) and open bar of 10:00 at 5:00 pm, in addition to using the local tents. The beach is beautiful and you can cross on foot to a small island where there are fish, corals and a wreck. Take snorkel and sneakers.

    Really nice beach, a lot more chilled out than the one in the centre. The rocks on the little island are super slippery, watch out. Good piece too snorkel.

    Nice beach to spend the day, the locals are very attentive and the drinks and food is regular priced. The sea isn't so calm and you must be careful while snorkelling around the small island and ship wreckage. I recommend spending at least a couple of hours around there.

    Nice beach. Better enjoyed with diving shoes and snorkling googles.

    Not that great experience in my opinion. There is a wreckage of an old ship.
