Barra del Colorado Beach:
It has dark sands and strong surf. It has a 5-kilometre extension between the mouth of the Colorado River and the Samay Lagoon. It is ideal for trekking while delighting yourself watching the flora and fauna, and with the peaceful contemplation of the sea.

It is located within the Barra del Colorado Wildlife National Refuge and it is limited by the mouth of the Colorado River to the north and the estuary to the south. You have to go to the beach on a boat from the Town.
