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.

  • We arrived at the beach star the day after to bocas town, we were a little disappointed with the place and this beach made us change your mind, we were in a van going up to the beach and then walk, there are several places to eat in the narrow Beach and the owners are responsible for taking care of the environment, since it is a delicate ecosystem the place we liked

  • Amazing beach. The definition of a tropical beach paradise. White sand. Crystal clear water. Palm tree. Small bars serving cocktails. Hopefully this place will not change. 
  • Great place for getting some relaxing done by the beach. The bus from Bocas del Toro is 5$ for a return ticket.
