Playa Blanca

Santa Marta, Magdalena, Colombia

A short trip from Santa Marta, Playa Blanca is a favorite of local families wanting to enjoy the white sand beach and clear blue water. Despite its relatively remote location, which requires a taxi and a short boat trip, the bay here is often busy with jet skiers, boaters and vendors selling their wares. For a more sedate experience, try to get an early start so you can enjoy a less crowded beach in the morning.
