This beach is truly beautiful. The water is a perfect temperature and you will feel really good going into it. If you have time in your schedule, make sure to visit here. However, the reviews on here are completely true. We were in a quieter...More

Spent 4 days in Cartagena in a beachfront apartment. The local municipal beaches are unappetizing with grey sand and a lot of activity including non-stop hawkers/vendors and petty criminals (beware your belongings on the beach- any). This is the reason many locals boat to other...More
