Playa Grande, Taganga

#4 of 13 in Beaches in Santa Marta Municipality
Beach · Nature / Park
A short walk out of the town, Playa Grande is a beach well-loved by the locals who flock to it during holidays. Backed by gentle, green hills, and lined with fine, white sand against emerald waters, this is a nice place to soaking up the rays. Reach the beach via an ecological path or by a quick boat trip. Take a dip in the clear water and top it off with a fresh catch served up by the many seaside restaurants.
