My Top 5 Favorite Beaches in Bocas del Toro, Panama

Posted by |


I would like to resign myself to a life of beach-bumming. Therefore, I regularly visit different beaches in Bocas in search of the perfect one. The problem is that I love something different about each one I’ve visited. Here are my top 5 thus far, in no particular order:

1. Starfish Beach

I’d never seen live starfish before this beach and the sight still makes me giddy. Even without the beautiful starfish that dot the crystal clear water, Starfish Beach is exceptional in that the atmosphere never fails to feel like a party no matter when you arrive. For $2.50, a local bus takes you from the park in Bocas Town to Bocas del Drago where awaiting water taxis drop you off at Starfish Beach. There, DJ booths provide the soundtrack as people snorkel, swim, sunbathe on lounge chairs available for rent, or eat fresh seafood from the local stands. I love Starfish because it’s the place to be and be seen- families, couples, singles, tourists, and locals alike share the warm waters with the starfish. However, you can just as easily walk down the trail to find a secluded spot and have a beach all to yourself when you want to get away from it all.

Some of the best beaches in the world as well as some of the best Spanish teachers in #Panama #BocasDelToro #hablaya #learnspanish #travel

2. Carenero Beach

Across the ocean from Bocas Town lies the pristine blue waters of Carenero, just a 10 minute water taxi ride away. Although Bibi’s Restaurant and Aqua Lounge (both highly recommended by the way) share the island with this pristine beach, it is never as crowded as Starfish. Instead, surfers can be seen braving the waves in the distance while people enjoy the calmer waters on the shore caused by breaks in the sea. Carenero also boasts a guy with a grill who makes the best burgers in the archipelago for just $5 with all the topping! That alone is worth the trip; however, when you’re tired of swimming and sunbathing and need to work that burger off… The trails along the beach lead you through untouched wilderness to a cliff-side that it perfect for watching the sky change colors as the sunsets.

3. Red Frog Beach

After a $3 water taxi to the Red Frog Marina and a $3 entrance fee, a trek through the dense Panamanian rainforest leads you to Red Frog. As you walk, don’t forget to look up for sloths and down for the red poison dart frogs from whom which the beach acquired its name! Red Frog is so beautiful and untamed that it’s humbling to experience. Rows of tourists idle under thatched beach umbrellas facing the eerily beautiful turquoise ocean. As much as I love frolicking in the water, the beauty of the ocean at Red Frog belies its actual power and one must pay very close attention to the signs posted with rip tide warnings. Instead of swimming, Red Frog is perfect for a day at the beach with your friends to get a massage, eat fresh ceviche from a local stand, and simply relax.

Nothing but soft sand and crystal blue beaches greeted us at #redfrogbeach. Now, we had to make the tough choices: stay...

4. Cayo Zapatillas

No discussion of beaches in Bocas del Toro is complete without a mention of the otherworldly beauty of Zapatillas. Zapatillas Cays are two islands surrounded by tropical coral reef that seemingly emerge from the sea. The mesmerizing turquoise water that washes ashore appear prepared to engulf the secluded islands at any moment. However, these two remote islands remain favorites for all day excursions that cost approximately $35. Remember to pack your own lunch when visiting Zapatillas, or place an order at a restaurant along the way. As part of Bastimentos National Marine Park, no businesses exist in this protected area. The beach at Zapatillas will leave you in awe of the untouched beauty of Panama. There is simply nothing else like it!

This is how we brought the weekend to an end: on the white sand beaches of Cayo Zapatilla. What did you do this weekend?#learnspanish #hablaya #travel #beach #visitpanama #panama #zapatilla #bocasdeltoro

5. Costa Azul Beach

Of course, you can’t always venture on a boat or a bus to get to the beach. When I simply want to listen to the sound of the waves while I read or write, I ride my bike a few minutes out of Bocas Town to Costa Azul Beach and find a shady spot under the mangrove trees. The local beaches are rarely packed and are great place for the dreamers in all of us!
