Fodor's Expert Review Playa Colorada

Las Galeras Beach Fodor's Choice

Only accessible on foot or by boat, this beach is undeveloped save for a hotel at the far end, and it offers solitude on most days. Have your hotel arrange for a small boat to take you there, either privately or with a group. Intrepid travelers who choose to go by foot will enjoy an intermediate, one-hour hike worth every second of the slight climb--especially for the incredible views. To hike here, ask for directions to Casa Dorado and stay on that path until you reach the beach. Bring water and snacks as there are no facilities. In the low season, expect to be among the only visitors. Amenities: None. Best for: sunbathing; swimming; hiking; solitude.
