Isla Grande, Colon

(2.8/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Hop on a boat to get to Isla Grande, an undeveloped, picturesque getaway. With no roads, a population of just over 1,000, and only a few resorts scattered across its shores, the island remains a tranquil sanctuary with a laid-back holiday vibe. Rest on sugar white beaches, lapped by turquoise waters ideal for snorkeling and swimming. If you fancy a hike, head up to the old lighthouse, which sits atop the island’s highest point and promises picture perfect views. The island offers only sparse amenities, so if you’re feeling peckish, head to one of the resorts for a seafood snack or come prepared with your own picnic. To visit Isla Grande on your trip to Colon, use our Colon tourist route planner.

  • I was with my husband and friends in Isla Grande for indication of our Uber in Panama, far from the city, road full if curves, principal port, precarious, crossing boats without a minimum of security, ugly island structure, filthy toilets, terrible food, and dirt and trash strewn about. Do not recommend to anyone.
