This is a must of you travel to La Guajira. When you go to Cabo de la Vela, you can go to the beach at Pilon de Azucar or you can only walk and enjoy the landscape.

Must see if you're in Cabo de la vela, to get a 360 view of the ocean and the desert. Your tour guide will take you here or if not you can find cheap motorbikes drivers who will take you there.

Great view. Involves some mild hiking with a great view at the end. You can see the bay on one side, the sea on the other and a small beach. At the end you get a 360 degree view of La Guajira
