San Andres, Colombia Vacations
Our Opinion of San Andres
The main attraction here for tourist has always been the coral formations along the eastern shore that gives the sea an unbelievably beautiful array of colours and the beaches with the whitest sand to be found anywhere. Visitors have also started delving a little deeper into the island's architectural styles, native dishes, music, dance and other common expressions of local culture.
It has become commonplace to see tourists at one of the lectures about defending the archipelago's ecological balance or to hear them exchanging opinions with the islanders during one of the reggae concerts.
Sprat Bight Beach
This is the main beach of the island, located in North End. With a length of 450 m and white sand, it is a preferred site for enjoying the sun and the transparency of the water. It is an ideal place for groups to meet for informal recreation.
This is the bay where the sun goes down, and where the Colombian Navy and Caribbean Cruise ships anchor. It is a good place for scuba diving.
A small island, visible from the beaches of downtown, it is a symbol and temple of tourism. Johnny Cay is a happy place, with palms, cocktails, local foods and a slightly rough sea.
This coral island full of palms, located next to the Aquarium, is a calm, sandy cay. Both isles are surrounded by all the colours of the San Andres Sea. Most aquatic sports are practiced around these cays.
This natural swimming pool lets you enjoy a good sea bath and swim without danger or waves.
