Tranquil Barú Island

Sail away to the tranquil islands and beaches in the Corales del Rosario National Park, just off Colombia’s Caribbean coastline southwest of Cartagena.

Journey Overview

Sail away to the tranquil islands and beaches in the Corales del Rosario National Park, just off Colombia’s Caribbean coastline southwest of Cartagena. Islas Barú is home to Playa Blanca, a stretch of impossibly white sand fringed with mangroves and palapas (thatched palm shade rooms). Islas del Roasrio is home to Colombia’s most important coral reef system and a protected Natural National Park. These romantic Caribbean island paradises are teeming with centennial trees, internal lagoons, white sandy stretches of beach and, of course, superb coral reefs. This is the Caribbean, but not as you know it.

Journey Highlights

  • Explore the colourful archipelago of coral islands
  • Seek out hidden icing-sugar beaches
  • Swim and snorkel in brilliant blue waters
