It is approximately 40 to 50 m long, adjacent to a shallow sedimentary bottom with no vegetation cover. In January 2015, a 16 m wide beach profile with an average gradient of 12° was completed.
Rocky Cay – San Andres Colombia
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.
If you just want to relax and enjoy the beaches, in San Luis Beaches place is ideal as it is away from the center of the island. Here you can visit Kella´sBar, a unique meeting place where besides mingling with locals and tourists from around the world, you can try the famous San Andrés cocoloco (crazy coconut) cocktail.

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.
