  • This is a public beach, check the prices before going there, take into account that there are not luxurious restaurants.. The sea and the space is great.  more »
  • Departure by boat (for rent) from the Marina of Santa Marta (1:00), with music and beer on board. Typical Caribbean Beach, with excellent water temperature (although not as hot as in Punta Cana, Cuba or Jamaica. There are some restaurants where you can have lunch, but the fish have a lesser quality. In the zone is the best for swimming.
