Crystal Beach (Playa Cristal)
On the edge of Tayrona National Natural Park and the northern coast of Colombia, Crystal Beach (Playa Cristal) is one of the most picturesque white sand beaches in South America. Its clear turquoise waters provide ideal conditions for swimming and snorkeling. Many come to relax on the soft sand shaded by coconut palms or to eat fresh seafood caught right off the shore. It is also a great base for exploring the Tayrona National Park, one of Colombia’s most important protected ecological areas, for the day.

Marine life in the waters off Crystal Beach (Playa Cristal) includes sea turtles, dolphins, and several species of fish. Even without spotting one these creatures, the coral and sponges of the reef provide colorful underwater scenes. The Caribbean reefs offshore also attract those seeking scuba diving and other water sports.

Practical Info

Crystal Beach can be accessed via a short bus and boat ride from Santa Marta.
Address: Road to Cienaga - Tayrona Park, Santa Marta, Columbia, Colombia
