Isla Zapatillas, Bocas del Toro Province

4.6
#1 of 17 in Parks in Bocas del Toro Province
Escape civilization with a visit to Isla Zapatillas, a set of two uninhabited islands known for their pristine, tropical beaches. Take a boat ride to one of the two islets, and find a secluded beach to relax on. Warm white sand and crystal clear waters encircle the islands' lush vegetation. Sunbathe, lounge in the shade of palm trees, or try snorkeling around the coral reefs just off the shore. Bring plenty of water, snacks, and sunscreen, as this remote location doesn't have any facilities.
