Playa Grande, Taganga

1.4
#3 of 11 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.

  • I recommend the beach and beautiful, don't have water wave and very still, the view is amazing, surrounded of mountains a paradise created by God, and cold water, but for those who like and delicious!!

  • Reaching taganga in bus public, they charged us 6mil per person to lead us by boat and return at 4 pm. Big beach has many estaderos, it is clean and the food we thought it was very rich and fresh. Density of normal people. Snorkel paid it 10mil per person for an hour, very nice experience since the fish are varied and are accustomed to that note. The boat ride is very short but if you still prefer not to upload one, the walk from taganga to playa grande seemed quite entertaining and not very difficult.

  • Good to cool off from the heat, there are vendors but they are so annoying!, there are businesses where food is cheap to get there want you to rent chairs up to the eyes, but there is a special business that are cheaper and you can sit in them all day
