Beach at Parque Nacional Tayrona

Beach at Parque Nacional Tayrona

Santa Marta has one of the most lovely bays in America. It is a peaceful place, full of natural charm, sea breeze, and pure mountain air.

Santa Marta and Sierra Nevada is a tourist destination that provides contact with nature, an excellent hotel infrastructure, and perfect sites for water sports, all in a relatively small area.

Situated on a beautiful bay where mountains share a view of the seaThe locality of El Rodadero, only five minutes from the historical center of Santa Marta, has beaches of very white medium-grained sand (the kind that does not stick to the skin) and a clean, calm blue-green sea. Here the sea poses no dangers for bathers and its pleasant temperature contrasts with the warmth of the sun. It also lends itself to the practice of all water sports.

Tayrona National Park

The Tayrona Park starts just half an hour away from Santa Marta where the ridges of the Sierra Nevada extend their arms into the sea giving shape to a complex system of coves and rocky cliffs. It is here that the paradisial Tayrona landscape is born.

The Park has quite a number of ample beaches. The best-known ones are Bahía Concha, a lovely spot for swimming; Neguanje, and Cañaveral. The latter two have camping grounds and beautiful beaches in the midst of luscious vegetation.
