Fodor's Expert Review Playa Ballena

Ballena National Marine Park Beach–Sight

Playa Ballena, 4 km (2½ miles) from Playa Colonia, is a lovely strand backed by lush vegetation and fairly easy to get to from the main highway, along a short, bumpy dirt road. Gas and charcoal barbecues are permitted here, so locals often have barbecues on weekends. There's free parking close to the beach. Amenities: showers; toilets. Best for: swimming; walking.
