Playa Bluff, Isla Colon

(4.1/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Take advantage of the secluded Playa Bluff to have an excellent surf beach mostly to yourself. Bring your gear along if you are into surfing and jump out to take advantage of the impressive waves. Only advanced swimmers should brave the strong tides, although most visitors can wade into the shallows without worry. Take a walk along the long, wide, sandy beach and observe the picturesque landscape, or continue your trek to a nearby restaurant for fresh seafood dishes.
