Boca del Drago, Bocas Town

3.4
#3 of 6 in Beaches in Bocas del Toro Province
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.

  • There's coconut trees, the path that runs along the beach and turquoise sea to reach the playa estrella and its major sea stars. Small restaurants along the beach with lobsters for 20 balboas. Superb!
