Laid-back, boho chic is a good way to describe the vibe at this Moorish beachfront property in an exclusive, intensely private spot in Baru.
The whitewashed beach house is blessed with blissful breezes all-year-round for a touch of beach combing at its very best.
With your own special deck and a gazebo that's built for serious R&R, an infinity pool and your own private beach its a delightful spot to soak up the sun and uninterrupted Caribbean horizons.
Ideal for families or a romantic escape with a very special plus one, Cashew Island is all yours at a price that will probably have you pinching yourself on arrival.
With four large bedrooms, the island has comfortable sleeping options for a family or group of up to 10 people. Your friends or family will love you for renting this very special island retreat.
If you and your group are active beachgoers there's the option of scuba diving, kayaks, fly-board, waterski and canoes at your disposal for some exploratory forays into the crystal clean, aquamarine waters of Cartagena's Caribbean coast.
You'll need to rent a boat to get there so make a day of it with boat options available for every budget with This Is Cartagena’s fleet of speedboats and yachts.
If you're staying for a few days it pays to have a boat docked alongside so you can make the most of the time with nautical excursions every day.
The fishing, diving, snorkeling and the tasty beach clubs in close proximity give you a good reason to leave your own private paradise, as is the scintillating scenery on offer in the Rosario Islands National Park.
Cashew Island comes equipped with friendly staff to pander to your culinary needs with a suitably Arabic-Caribbean themed menu that goes with the Moorish architecture.
The staff can craft a menu to your tastes and ensure the island’s fully stocked with your favourite food and drink on arrival.
With the exception of Playa Blanca, the most prized and expansive of Baru's beaches, the beaches on Cartagena's biggest island other are small, intimate and often lined with mangroves.
If you're slightly disappointed with the urban beaches, Baru will exceed your beach expectations. Located a short 45-minute speedboat ride away you have more than enough powdery stretches of sand to keep you happy. Unlike the Rosario Islands, Baru is also accessible by land.
The island's biggest meeting point is the protected cove of Cholon, where beach revellers let rip with some water bound tail-gating on private boats equipped with blaring sound systems and party as if they were auditioning for a hip hop video.
If you're craving something a little more laid-back, there's some lovely beach front properties and beach clubs springing up on Baru for Colombia's moneyed classes that provide all the modern comforts for luxury beach combers.
