Welcome to Playa Blanca


The beach is located about 20km southwest of Cartagena, on the Isla de Barú. It's usually a stop for boat tours heading to the Islas del Rosario; when the boat tours arrive, peddlers descend upon the tourists, which has the potential to turn an otherwise idyllic beach into a two-hour challenge. The only thing worth buying is cocada, a sweet coconut treat that comes in a variety of flavors. Playa Blanca is also good for snorkeling, as the coral reef begins just off the beach. You can rent gear for COP$5000 on the beach.
