Bahia Concha: How to get there, what to do and tips to go

Stunning! This is how many tourists describe Bahía Concha, a beautiful beach located in Tayrona Park. The entrance to this beach was charged some time ago, but since June of this year, modifications have been made in order to improve the experience of tourists. In this blog we will tell you how to get there, what to do and tips to go to Bahía Concha.


How to get to Bahía Concha?

It does not matter if you decide to go with an agency, a private car or in a Chiva (typical truck); you must continue walking from the entrance of Bahía Concha through the authorized and signposted path to the beach. The above is due to the process of restoration and recovery of the environment in this area. Remember that if you hire an agency to go to Bahía Concha, you must verify that the guide is duly certified as it is specified by Colombian regulations.


Admission to the beach

As mentioned above, the entrance is not charged since June of 2019**; however, it is necessary to take into account that access will be subject to capacity. Currently it is stipulated that the maximum number of visitors allowed is 2,000 (two thousand) people per day. Once this number of people is reached, the entrance to Bahía Concha will be closed.

** Subject to changes and decisions that National Natural Parks of Colombia may take to ensure the preservation of this protected area.

Obligatory insurance

Although you no longer have to pay to enter Bahía Concha, it is necessary that you acquire an Accident and Rescue Policy or Insurance as a mandatory requirement, as it is a national requirement to enter protected areas in the country.

There are some agencies that already include this fee in the total price of the tour. Ask for it before paying.

“It is important to reiterate that the requirement of the insurance policy of accidents and rescue do not compromise the responsibility of Natural National Parks of Colombia in the acquisition and execution of the insurance contract”.
