Downtown San Andrés is known as North End. Here you will find the business and shopping zones and the main beach, known as Sprat Bight, with its white coral sand and crystal clear water. Johnny Cay is right in front of this beach. The majority of the restaurants are also found in this area.

San Luis is one of the native districts of San Andres, with wooden houses and Caribbean architecture. There are beautiful beaches here, as well as hotels and restaurants that blend in with the local architecture.

Morgan’s Cave is a small deep lake within a cave of coral rock.

The Cove is a great place to watch the sun set. Naval and cruise ships anchor here, and it is an excellent dive spot. You will find restaurants here featuring the local cuisine.

Enjoy a day at the beach, or visit the Island’s attractions, and end the day with an exquisite dinner after the sun sets.
