Baru Island Tours

A verdant peninsula jutting out below Cartagena and lapped by the glass-clear waters of the Caribbean, Baru Island has long been touted as one of Colombia’s most serene beach resorts and deservedly so. The aptly named Playa Blanca is the undeniable highlight, an expanse of powder-white sands, where you can sip cocktails and tuck into fresh seafood on the beach, enjoy water sports like jet-skiing and speed-boating, or while away the afternoon swimming and snorkelling. 

Baru Island is also the gateway to the Rosario Islands National Park, a cluster of islands renowned for their colorful corals and a popular destination for scuba diving and snorkelling.

Practical Info

Baru Island is located around 30km south of Cartagena on Colombia’s Caribbean coast and is reachable by bus or boat from Cartagena.
