Playa Grande, Taganga

1.4
#3 of 6 in Beaches in Santa Marta District
A short walk out of the town, Playa Grande is a beach well-loved by the locals who flock to it during holidays. Backed by gentle, green hills, and lined with fine, white sand against emerald waters, this is a nice place to soaking up the rays. Reach the beach via an ecological path or by a quick boat trip. Take a dip in the clear water and top it off with a fresh catch served up by the many seaside restaurants.

    Dirty sand. Not too many sellers. Clean water. Too beautiful beach! Sure enough. We can leave his stuff on the beach and swim quietly as in France.
