It’s time to revive your soul and start the week in the refreshing waters of Palomino Beach. Why? We can’t think of anywhere more rejuvenating than the clearest waters and the softest sands of Palomino. It’s almost as if the Caribbean palms blew over its idyllic beauty and landed itself in Colombia. The fine white sands and aqua marine ocean reflect the glimmering sunlight on this remote and tranquil island whilst you’re sipping a crushed ice Pina Colada, have we tempted you yet?
Just an hour outside of the glorious Tayrona National Park you’ll find yourself on your own private escape (well it will certainly feel like that). Being located so close to the park, you’ll find Palomino equally rich in natural beauty, but a lot less crowded than its neighbor, making it a blissful escape. Simply flop on the beach and soak it all up for a while, or, for those with a need to explore, enjoy a spot of snorkelling in the shallows with the rainbow coral, or go a little deeper to see more tropical fish. Or, why not take to the waves in a kayak or have a go at windsurfing. And for those who are more pro terra firma, how about a majestic horse ride along the lapping shores? It may feel remote, but there’s plenty to do here.
The best bit? Unlike its neighboring parkland, this treasure trove is completely free to enter. Despite this, Palomino remains relatively undiscovered, so we urge you to discover this Colombian hidden gem before the word gets out. It’s picture perfect and provides the perfect beachspiration next time you’re feeling the effects of a Monday al desko.
