Red Frog Beach, Isla Bastimentos

3.4
#1 of 7 in Things to do in Isla Bastimentos
Named after the strawberry-colored poison-dart frogs that inhabit the nearby forest, Red Frog Beach on Panama’s Bastimentos island continues to attract visitors with its idyllic surroundings and laid-back vibe. Situated on the northeastern side of the hilly island, the narrow, secluded beach offers plenty of activities. Besides surfing the undulating waves in the swell season, you can swim, snorkel, or laze on the soft white sands. Take a relaxing walk along the sand, surrounded by verdant rainforest, and enjoy the view from the boardwalk pier at the eastern end of the beach. Spot local wildlife, such as frogs, sloths, or monkeys, and hang out at a beach bar with a delicious drink. Our Isla Bastimentos online sightseeing planner makes visiting Red Frog Beach and other Isla Bastimentos attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Is amazing, just make sure you stay at a real beachfront hotel/hostel. El Palmar seems great. The boat ride from isla colon is not so long.  more »
  • You have to take a boat to the island and pay then 5 dollars for cleaning, infrastructure is scarce and bad, no wifi and bathrooms are a few latrines that are scarce in addition to ugly. Natural whether jungle and beach are beautiful so I recommend visiting

  • This island is incredible and the water is clear and warm. Mangroves everywhere, great exploring, bird watching and of course, the howler monkeys are entertaining.  more »
