Boca del Drago, Bocas Town

3.4
#3 of 24 in Beaches in Panama
Search crystal clear shallows for colorful starfish at Boca del Drago, where palms and mangroves line a white sandy bay. If you look closely, you will see plenty of starfish in the bay in all different colors and sizes-- many call this bay home. Over the years, this natural attraction has brought a hub of tourism to the bay, with plenty of beach restaurants now selling food, drinks and the odd souvenir. Out from the shore look for a small speckle of coral-- it offers good snorkelling conditions in calm waters. Remember not to touch the starfish.

  • The beach located between Drago and star is very very quiet, no waves. It must be the best beaches of the island. You are arriving by bus for $5 and is 40 minutes from the village. There is good seafood restaurants.

  • Great place for swimming, snorkeling and beach walking. Very quite and there are no people pressuring you to do something.  more »
  • I think that bocas del Drago is a place of passage to go to beach star or for lunch and relax in the hammocks overlooking the sea has one of the restaurants.
