Nice place not the best beach but nice to visit. Lots of families and people enjoying the sun. The water & beach could do with being cleaner

It`s kind of a walk along the cliff. On the weekends very busy with a lot of locals. You get to see local lifestyle, but i wouldn`t call it a beautiful beach. It does the job - you can go for a swim. But nothing...More

If the beach in Taganga is too crowded or dirty for your taste then don't hesitate to venture over to Playa Grande! You can take a boat if you're lazy or have small children, but you're missing out if you don't hike. The trail starts...More

A friend recommended Taganga for the beach, the diving, and the laid back atmosphere. She was right about 2 out of 3! The beach is terrible. If you want to dive in Colombia, this is basically the only place to do it cheap.

The setting of this beach is beautiful, and one can see a wonderful sun set from here. The water is nice a clear, although the sand is a bit rocky it is a pleasent place to swim. There are also plenty of activity options.

The beach does not live up to its name. We visited for three hours. Sun loungers in the shade cost $5,000. The beach is pretty average. It was busy, but we went during semana santa. I would recommend trying out playa blanca instead.

Nothing special and full of people and restaurants. So if you are looking for more relax time continue walking by the ocean cliff another 10 to 20 minutes so find more quiet spots.

Better than the beach in Taganga, but still a bit dirty. A lot of people, and noise! My shoes was stolen right in front of my nose, and I had to walk the way back without them. Go to tyrona instead

Take a fisherman boat for about 5000 pesos to this beach. Once there, you can rent a chair and enjoy a pretty clean beach. There are plenty of vendors for snacks and lunch.
