The nicest and biggest beach on Isla Colón is Bluff Beach, a 7-km (3 ½-mi) stretch of golden sand backed by tropical vegetation and washed by aquamarine waters. It's a great place to spend a day, or even an hour, but it has virtually no facilities, so pack water and snacks. When the waves are big, Playa Bluff has a beach break right on shore, but it can also develop rip currents, so swimmers beware. When the sea is calm it's a decent swimming beach—always exercise caution—and the rocky points at either end have decent snorkeling. Leatherback turtles nest here from April to September, when a local group runs night tours to look for them. If you're lucky, you may find baby turtles on the beach between June and December.
