To someone who enjoys camping and the beach, it’s time to shake up that typical camping and beach escapade experience.
Camping on a beach, not to mention in an island, is something you should try. Not only will you get to have an easy reach of the water, but it also allows you to have a magnificent view of the stars above while the moonlight glitters on the water. Can you now imagine the beauty before going to sleep? Let’s bot forget waking up to an endless view of the water. What a sight!
Pasil Sandbar in Medellin offers the best of beach camping. And since it’s a public beach, entrance is FOR FREE. The sound of the waves and the white sandbar is all yours, FOR FREE.
Since it’s camping, you have to bring your own food, too. Since the island shows no sign of stores where you can buy your food, make sure to bring your own supply. However, places to cook are available in the area so, you may bring ready-to-cook meals.
The island has no electricity too. Perfect for those who would really want to disconnect from the harsh world of reality and reconnect with nature and her people. However, if you can’t live without one, you may bring your own powerbank and charged lamps and whatnot.
This is definitely not a fancy island where you can book a room or two. It is a sandbar where you can stay a night, in your own tent, and wake up to the white noise of the waves and pure nature. Make sure to bring your own tent so you can sleep with your own roof.
