You'd never know it, but the tranquil pueblo of Tolú, the capital of the Golfo de Morrosquillo, is one of Colombia's most visited tourist destinations. Colombians flock here throughout the high season for its small-town feel and surrounding beaches, but there's rarely a foreigner in sight. The rest of the year, it's a quiet backwater. The beaches aren't particularly impressive, but they're pleasant enough if you're passing through.
Tolú's lengthy malecón (boardwalk), full of seaside bars, restaurants and small artisan stalls, is worth a stroll, but the main draw for foreign tourists is the town's proximity to the idyllic Islas de San Bernardo, part of Parque Nacional Natural (PNN) Corales del Rosario y San Bernardo.
