  the beaches of Taganga are best at sunset
by richiecdisc

The beaches of Taganga are nicer than Santa Marta but mostly due to their gorgeous setting and of course, you don't have to see the port from where you're taking a dip. They are not exactly pristine on closer inspection and talk about crowded, that they are. Packed and packed only with backpackers. You could completely forget that you are in Colombia and even South America for that matter. There is however a much nicer beach called Playa Grande just around the headland. We had arrived in Taganga in the late afternoon primarily for a meal and after a nice scenic walk we just enjoyed the sunset from the main Taganga beach which was quite pretty if not exactly the most secluded romantic spot. Looking for a honeymoon destination? This is not it.

Directions: It runs the length of the town in scenic horseshoe-shape fashion.
