Isla Grande, Colon

2.9
#4 of 7 in Parks in Colon Province
Island Nature / Park
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.

Also walked in a rubber raft pulled by a motorboat, fun, SUPER recommended experience!
