Discovering Beautiful Colombia Beaches

Colombia beaches are what you imagine when you picture beaches in South America. Discovering beautiful Colombia beaches is one of the best-kept secrets of South America’s treasures. These Caribbean Colombia beaches and islands are lesser known and just as beautiful as others in the Caribbean, such as Jamaica and the Bahamas.

Colombia Beaches San Andreas

Imagine crystal clear waters, white sand and tropical weather in Colombia, and the first place that comes to mind is San Andres Island. Located in the Caribbean, and just a two-hour flight away from mainland Colombia, this island paradise offers a spectacular scenario for relaxation. San Andres boasts perfect weather throughout the year, and its lush vegetation makes this place one of the “must see” Colombia beaches. The local culture reflects its different historical influences – from the Spanish colonial era to reggae due to its proximity to Jamaica. Colombia Beaches near CartagenaOne of the most important Colombia beaches are those located in Cartagena de Indias. Surrounded by a beautiful landscape of white sand, palm trees, and blue ocean, this city is well-known for its architecture and rich culture. Besides its beautiful Colombia beaches, the city is an amazing destination by itself, divided into two areas, one modern part called  “Bocagrande” with high towers facing the beach, and the historical part called “The Walled City,” full of restaurants and shopping centers. One interesting Colombia beach to visit from Cartagena is Rosario Island which can be reached by boat. Actually a collection of small islands, Rosario is a perfect getaway from the city and it offers a rather calm atmosphere for those in search of relaxation. Swim, snorkel, and kayak among the coral reefs and mangrove forests. Visit the aquarium and then enjoy a lunch of fried plantains and fish. For travelers who are interested in something more adventurous, the Tayrona National Park will be the perfect place to visit. Facing the Carribean Sea, this coastal national park is a great place for trekking, surfing, and relaxing on pristine beaches. This delightful spot can be reached really easily from Santa Marta, and it offers Colombia wilderness at its most pure. After a day spent hiking or surfing, relax in an “arrecife” hammock hut or go camping. While away the evening listening to reggae music and sipping a fresh-squeezed maracuya juice. Watch the sunset and learn why discovering beautiful Colombia beaches is well-worth the trip to South America. So after following along on this Colombia beaches list, you now know whether you want to explore a Cartagena Colombia beach, a San Andrés Colombia beach, or Palomino beach Colombia, a dream tour of Colombia has it all.
