About Concha Bay (Shell Bay)

A beautiful beach with clear waters that are a little fresher than the other beaches. In high-tourism season, this beach can fill up with tourists, which does make it lose a bit of its natural charm. Even still, you can swim without fear of motorized boats, and you can find plenty of restaurants that sell typical Colombian dishes that are rich in fish.
