topping the charts…

Looking for an exotic beach destination for your next vacation? We have one of the best, according to Guardian Unlimited

2. Tayrona national park, Colombia
I’ve never been as instantly impressed by a beach as I was the moment I set eyes on Tayrona. After a 40-minute hike through the forest, I was expecting to see a classic Caribbean beach, all white sand and calm turquoise water, perhaps a few cabanas for the tourists. Instead I was greeted with a wild sea crashing on to rocks the size of houses that are dotted along the untamed and semi-deserted beach. In a country with a “healthier” tourist industry Tayrona would undoubtedly be a major resort, but as it’s in Colombia the virgin rainforest cascades down the mountainside right on to the sand. And there was no one on it save a small community of backpackers who sleep in open-air hammocks.

Where to stay: Under the stars in a hammock strung between two palm trees.



  1. Gosh! I never knew that Tayrona was world’s 2nd best beach.Was on my plan for this weekend…but Huh! Will make plans for last weekend of this month.

  2. Agreed
