The water is turquoise. That’s the only good point. You will be harassed by all type of vendors or massagers. Also, there is a « lake » full of trash 50m away from de beach. It smells like death and all the restaurants are putting their trash...More

A nice beach accessible by small boat from Rodadero/Santa Marta. Minimal vendors on the beach and restaurants offer choice of fresh fish.

My friend and I stayed on Playa Blanca for 2 nights. The beach is nice, but it is overrun by vendors, it’s ridiculous! Plus there are jet skis that drive super close to shore. We couldn’t even relax because someone was trying to sell us...More

I couldn't tell if there was a beach or if, indeed, it was White. Human gnats swarming over every square centimeter of the 'beach' made it seem as if I were at a Black Friday sale at WalMart instead of on a Caribbean beach. For...More
