Playa Bluff, Bluff Beach

4.2
Take advantage of the secluded Playa Bluff to have an excellent surf beach mostly to yourself. Bring your gear along if you are into surfing and jump out to take advantage of the impressive waves. Only advanced swimmers should brave the strong tides, although most visitors can wade into the shallows without worry. Take a walk along the long, wide, sandy beach and observe the picturesque landscape, or continue your trek to a nearby restaurant for fresh seafood dishes. By using our Bluff Beach day trip app , you can arrange your visit to Playa Bluff and other attractions in Bluff Beach.

  • Spectacular beach, with an extensive sandy beach and surrounded by Palm trees. Soft sand and soft. Perfect warm water.

  • The most beautiful gold sand and crystal clear water. I spent more than a few days just swimming in the ocean.  more »

  • 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.
  • One of my favorite beaches in Bocas! Still quite virgin, quiet and beautiful! Perfect for a relaxing day at the beach and some surf. Careful with the waves though, there are very strong curents. Love this place!
  • Beautiful Beach, good for surfing
  • amazing experience ! Quiet corner in a wonderful place!
  • Great place to visit! No swimming though!
