Only advanced swimmers should brave the strong tides, although most visitors can wade into the shallows without worry.

  • the beach is a little far from the town of Bocas, accessible by bike in half a cry. it is wild, with little sand at high tide. Please beware, this is a nesting place for turtles (luth among others) that are very endangered. So defense to ride in a car on it, to ride there on horseback, you have to stay on the paths. Very beautiful landscape. not easy to swim there because of the big waves and the coral reef, it is rather a place of surf.

  • One of the most beautiful nature beach you can find. Very clear just by itself, wild, romantic. Adventure night walking. Just too wild to go swim (at least on time we were there in June)  more »
  • The beach is very long and beautiful. The water of course pleasantly warm and at the end there is also a bar. A great excursion. It is best to rent a bike & take it to the beach, about an hour. Great way.

  • The most beautiful beach close to the town of Bocas. In my opinion.
  • Terrible beach, always waves and pulls you in. It is not for swimming. Roads are dirt roads terrible. Not recommended.
  • amazing experience ! Quiet corner in a wonderful place!
  • Quiet & Secluded beach 8 kms from downtown Bocas. The road is quite bumpy though if you go by bike or car. We saw a few people cycling that way but I would not recommend going alone given how some people have "vanished" in Bocas. Not safe for bathing dud to rip tides, this is a beach for surfing. But worth visiting, the sand feels delicious under your feet like walking on a cloud.
  • Beautiful Beach, good for surfing
