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 infamous “Polo” character who left the spoils of civilization to make this stretch of land his home for years on end. Like many species of rare indigenous frogs and other wildlife native to Bastimentos, he can still be spotted occasionally in the area.
