Playa Blanca. Cartagena De Indias (Distrito Turístico Y Cultural), Colombia
Note

This makes for a fun day/two-day trip from Cartagena, and it's a lovely beach, with incredibly clear turquoise sea. The best way to do it, in terms of cost and experience, is to get the bus to playa blanca, which takes you as far as the channel crossing. Cross the channel on the little car ferry, then negotiate with all the moto-taxis for a good price. One of them will whiz you along the dirt roads to the beach (it's fun, honest!) Spend a day at the beach and get the afternoon ferry back to Cartagena, OR, stay the night in one of the hammocks along the beach (fairly cheap). This way you get to appreciate the beach when it's quiet. The reason for getting the ferry for the return journey and not to get out there is because if you take the ferry from Cartagena you get charged a large harbour tax on top of the ticket price, whereas on the way back you don't.
