Coming in at #9 on our “Top 10 Beaches” Countdown is Carenero Beach – Just a 4 minute water taxi from Isla Colon, Carenero Beach is by far the most easily accessible of all the beaches in Bocas del Toro. Sitting on the edge of Jurassic Park-esque jungle backdrop, this small stretch of white sand is a very popular afternoon hangout spot. The extending wooden dock is the perfect setting for a good read or to watch the surfers boat by on their way to surf Old Man’s, Black Rock and Carenero Point. At just $3 round trip, and with restaurants and hangout spots like Bibi’s on the Beach and Aqua Lounge right around the corner, many locals agree that Carenero beach is the best way to catch some sun on a “busy” island day!
