If you’re looking for the best beach stays in Cartagena, you’ve hit gold. A short hop by boat the world's largest trove of sunken treasure you'll find, the ultimate collection of luxury beach front real estate on the breathtakingly beautiful island of Barú.

Cartagena’s own tropical paradise, a veritable Caribbean playground for the richest families in Colombia has everything from affordable vacation rentals to luxurious beach villas perfect for romantic getaways and the most special of occasions.

Baru has become so much more than Playa Blanca in the last 10 years, boasting what are, without question, the best beaches in Cartagena.

The island is a spectacular base camp so look beyond Playa Blanca to the Rosario Islands and enjoy a day on your own private boat or simply merge into the laidback Caribbean vibe at one of the island's top beach resorts.

 

Forget battling for a strip of sand and enjoy instead an altogether more refined beach experience.

Booking a stay on Barú is a chance to live it up like Colombian royalty and explore nearby attractions at your leisure away from the crowds.

If you need a little help coordinating the perfect trip to the beach with a little island hopping in style thrown in for good measure, then contact one of our talented team of travel advisors to organise a stellar trip to the Colombian Caribbean.

So many islands, so little time. Allow one of our local beach experts to point you in the right direction.
