In a statement, the Colombian government said it is working on ways to keep the beaches safe and in good condition.
“Colombia’s high surf zone has been designated as a high risk area by the Colombian National High Surf Advisory Council.
High surf advisements will be issued as appropriate based on the status of the high surf zones,” the statement said.
