Popular with Cartagena's beaux monde at the weekend, Blue Apple caters to a well-travelled crowd that wants to milk their sun and sand experience for as long as possible.
A short hop from Cartagena's historic old town, Tierrabomba offers a convenient island foil to the culinary charms and nocturnal attractions of the city.
Ideal for a city break or long weekend, it's all too easy to tag a night's stay in one of their five suites or five rooms is a must for beach bums with more than a day to spare.
With a night for as little as USD$250 a night, this tasty beach retreat with a total of 10 breezy suites all named after Colombian fruits is too sweet to resist.
Accommodating up to 20 people, rooms can be rented individually or as a whole house if you’re a big group on the hunt wanting to escape dry land for a bit.
Modern creature comforts are catered for with all rooms boasting a private bathroom, hot water, air conditioning, balcony or terrace, minibar, cable TV and WiFi. The newer cabañas, Coco, Piña and Corozo come with their own plunge pool, making them popular with honeymooners.
For a little added space and book the signature suite, Manzana. Having extra time to work your way through the island retreat's sophisticated menu is a big part of Blue Apple's undisputed allure.
Expect a crowd to turn up during the day so plan a day's diving or island hopping in the Rosario islands if you want to escape the crowd.
Just seven minutes from Castillogrande, the white sandy beaches of Punta Arena on the eastern side of the large island of Tierra Bomba is one of the best kept secrets of Cartagena.
An island almost half the size of the city of Cartagena, Tierra Bomba has historically held an important military function protecting the inhabitants from attacks by British and French pirates.
To the southern tip of the island you can find the historic fortifications - San Fernando castle built by the Spanish as the first line of defense against any maritime attackers.
'Los Nativos' or the Tierra Bomba locals are proud descendants of African slaves hungry to gain a living from their newfound beach goldmine.
They'll take good care of you and cook you a traditional seafood dish and serve up all the drinks you need to pass the day.
There's a flurry of new beach clubs springing up that offer visitors to Cartagena a relatively close beach escape from the city.
While they may not boast the most untouched beaches in Colombia, beach clubs like Fenix Beach Club and Blue Apple Beach House are perfectly set up for late-risers that aren't into to taking a 45-minute boat ride to Baru or the the Rosario Islands.
