Fodor's Expert Review Playa Colonia

Ballena National Marine Park Beach

This beach is safe for swimming and has a view of rocky islands, which you can visit by kayak. The access road is a well-graded dirt road. There is a sandy break for surfing, with gentle waves for beginners. In high season, vendors sell cold drinks and souvenirs at the beach entrance. It’s the only beach where cars can park practically on the beach, and camping is included in the admission price. Amenities: food and drink; showers; toilets. Best for: swimming.
