Surf Trip Isla Fuerte, Colombia

Isla Fuerte is a small island located in the Cordoba department on the Caribbean coast of Colombia.
It is located about 11km from land, and is part of the chain of islands comprised of Islas del Rosario and the archipelagos of San Bernardo and Tortuguilla.
The fastest way to the island is to drive or fly to Monteria, and from there to the port of Paso Nuevo where one can take a boat ride (approximately 30 minutes) to the island.
The island is perfectly positioned to receive NW swell.
The best wave on the island, and arguably the best on the Caribbean coast of Colombia is the aptly named ColPipe.

Back in 2009, the wave was not surfed much or at least it had not been documented, but now view this video produced by ZOME films of a recent surf trip in 2015 to Isla Fuerte, with Barranquilla body boarders Stephen Meyer, Ruben Villegas and surfer Roberto Marulanda.


  1. I like to read this blog, the photos are great! The nature of your country is very beautiful. I read news on spanish on quivo.co, there are you can read sport, social, political, financial and other the latest news of Columbia. I`ve just read an interesting article on that site `Andrés Rentería no estará con la Selección en los Olímpicos`. How do you think how many chances have columbian football players on Olimpic games?
