Top 10 Beaches Countdown
Topping our list and claiming the number one position in the “Best Beaches of Bocas del Toro” countdown is Red Frog Beach. The most accommodating of all the beaches in Bocas del Toro, Red Frog sits on a gorgeous stretch of Isla Bastimentos and is bookended by two popular restaurant bars. Having these amenities conveniently within reach allows beachgoers to enjoy a day in the sun without too much prior planning. With water and food taken care of, it’s always [...]
Coming in at #2 on our Top 10 Beaches in Bocas del Toro Countdown is Playa Bluff – Bluff is the largest and most beautiful beach on Isla Colón. It is secluded, pristine and also the least crowded! At five miles in length, it is easy to claim your own section of prime beach real estate. Although lounging on Bluff beach is as relaxed as it gets, the sea can be rough at times. Notorious for it's powerful shore-break waves, [...]
Coming in at #3 on our "Top Ten Beaches of Bocas del Toro Countdown" are Las Islas Zapatillas. This pristine and remote set of islands offers by far the best place in the entire Bocas del Toro archipelago to completely escape and “get away’ from it all. A half hour boat ride from Isla Colon (on a fast ponga) Zapatilla is composed of two breathtakingly beautiful islands that emerge from the surrounding coral reef. They are protected as a part [...]
Coming in at #4 is Starfish Beach – Unlike any other beach in Bocas del Toro, Starfish Beach (or "Playa Estrella") is located on the remote, unexposed side of Isla Colón. The shoreline is shaped like a bay, so it doesn’t catch any swell - making for placid turquoise waters and a relaxed vibe. There is room for a volleyball court, a couple small restaurants, and the newest addition to the beach activities - along with kayaks and floating lounge [...]
This magical stretch of land is a favorite among many for its expansive beach, ample privacy, gorgeous surroundings and consistent surf. The beach is tucked away in an untouched region of Isla Bastimentos, and is only accessible on foot or by boat (when the surf will allow it). Our favorite way to reach this spot is to make a day of it. Take a lancha boat from Isla Colon to the main dock in Bastimentos town. Hike up to the [...]
For anyone looking to hang at the beach with cold beers, food and friends nearby - or simply to grab a quick lunch and take in some sun - Paki Point is the perfect place to lounge away an afternoon. Just a beautiful 15 minute coastal bike ride from town, Paki Point is a common stopping point and meeting ground for Bocas del Toro locals, stunning tourists, families, and anyone else who enjoys grabbing a burger and a beer on [...]
One of the most beautiful stretches of beach on Isla Bastimentos, this secluded section of coastline is ringed by a gorgeous coral reef, keeping the water calm and providing one of the most optimal environments in Bocas del Toro for snorkeling. It's very likely that you'll be the only ones enjoying Polo Beach on any particular day, as it's only accessible by jungle hike or direct shoreline access by boat during calmer seas. The beach gets its name from an [...]
A hidden treasure, this cove is so secluded that we can't spoil it's secrecy by publishing it's exact whereabouts! We will say that it's in a remote stretch of Isla Colon, tucked away from everything, including the open ocean. A narrow water inlet feeds the Caribbean Sea into a football-field-sized turquoise green pool, surrounded by jungle and filled with colorful coral and starfish. As far as romance goes, it doesn't get any better - you just need to figure out [...]
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 [...]
Coming in at #10 on the "Top 10 Most Beautiful Beaches of Bocas del Toro" Countdown - La Cabaña (City Beach). Although not as stunning as other beaches in Bocas del Toro, City Beach is just a short 5 minute bike ride or 10 minute walk from town - perfect for a run, evening stroll or a game of beach volleyball. It's also the most popular beach for the local indigenous people. The kids, always smiling, can be found splashing [...]
