What's Near Christopher Columbus

Often, finding accommodations within walking distance of a good beach can make your trip even more exciting.

Fortunately, Christopher Columbus is directly on the water, so you won't have to go out of the way to experience first hand what makes the area such a popular vacation destination.

Nearby Beaches

Needless to say, since Christopher Columbus was built directly on Cemetery Beach, laying out in the sun is one of the main attractions here. The waters are calm for swimming and wading and this beach is usually active, populated by guests of nearby accommodations. Most of the beach has resorts and villas on the inland edge, not native flora, so the beach offers little shade. For guests who are willing to venture off site, its not difficult to find another beach to experience. Click the names below to read our detailed article:
