Rocky Cay beach has a length of 790 m, located at the point formed towards the cay to which it owes its name, on the east side of the island. This is a beach that is located to the east of the island and goes in a north-south direction, with certain variations: in the north it goes in a southeast direction and closes against a reef terrace, from there the direction of the beach changes and the amplitude increases towards the southwest.

Charquitos – San Andres Colombia

One of the quietest beaches on the island is on the southern tip. We recommend these families with children, seniors and travelers in general who want to enjoy the sea in peace.

Thanks to the offshore reefs, the current is slowed down and the waves break early.
