Boca del Drago, Bocas Town

(3.3/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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 were short swim, directly on the beach of Boca del dragon, and suddenly the Backpack was gone! The Flip-Flops were still there, but the backpack with clothes, goggles, towel and money was gone. From the locals, no help, and no police far and wide. We was just ridiculed, despite peffektem Spanish. NEVER LET YOUR THINGS FROM THE EYES!

  • From Bocas can be catching a bus at the main square ($2.5 path). If you walk about 15 minutes arrive to Starlight beach... you can see many of stars easily near the shore. Shortly before reaching the star beach, there are a few beaches that tend to be quieter with fewer people and turquoise water to enjoy paradise! :)

  • It is the place where arrive buses ranging from Bocas Town. Not many people stays there, preferring to go by boat to Playa La Estrella. It is small, not much space to rest.
