Palomino beach

Ultimate guide (August 2022)
Palomino is a surfer beach on the Caribbean coast of Colombia. Most of time there are strong waves, so it is possible to swim just near the coast. And anyway there are often strong currents. But after all you'll get your own 3-miles coast with a lot of tall palm trees. The sand is white with occasional black fractions. Snow peaks of Sierra Nevada Mountains can be seen from the beach. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]
This beach ranks #3 of the "Best beaches in Santa Marta"

Hotels [edit]

The cost of a good beachfront hotel starts from US$50 per night for the room. There are also some cheaper options, but these are often not available for the online booking.

Please note that a 15-minute walk from the beach there is Palomino village itself. It has much more accommodation options, while the prices are cheaper.
