Guachalito

Guachalito, like La Guajira, is one of those places in Colombia that is bound to capture the imagination. After a half-hour boat ride from Nuquí you’ll find a long, clear beach almost untouched by tourism and urban development. This is Guachalito – the most idyllic and beautiful beach on the whole of the Chocó coast.

Reachable by visiting Nuquí, you can also visit the Parque Nacional Ensenada de Utria. The park is host to a huge amount of wildlife, including dolphins and whales. It’s a great place t come to witness the migrating humpback whales which visit during the months of July and October.

Clearly the major attraction of Guachalito is wandering down the spectacular coastline and not really doing much apart from relaxing, however there is fishing and diving available in nearby Nuquí.
