Bocagrande is a peninsula off of downtown Cartagena, and is where the city’s beaches are located. Robyn and I went three times. The first time we went late in the afternoon, and found that the men selling things and ladies offering massages were quite aggressive, to the point where we couldn’t enjoy the beach at all. The next time, we found a hidden gem, the Sunset Beach bar!
This bar is located off of the Hotel Dann, and is semi-private; you get the same gorgeous views and you’re right on the beach, but no one bothers you! They have a ton of comfortable, shaded cabanas, which are perfect for a relaxing day. The best part? No charge! We just ordered a few drinks the first time we went, and got lunch the second time. Prices are very reasonable. As the name suggests, you will get to see some pretty gorgeous sunsets from this place!
