Red Frog Beach, Isla Bastimentos
(3.4/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 3 dollars to go by boat to the vessel and then walk 30 minutes in the middle of the forest crossing the island before falling to wizards Beach. Divine beach with few people. Very long. Variable swell (you even surf in season) but perfect for a swim. Sea piping hot. I recommend you bring water and a bit of fruit to spend the day and not disitratarvi. After a couple hours layover in wizard we resumed the walk about in an hour took us to Red Frog. Beautiful and special the Summit between the two beaches with rocks before. kids everywhere who try to rip you off the dollar to make you see frogs that are below each leaf. Too bad the residence has spoiled the bucolic setting and the pristine beach. In fact we enjoyed more Wizard beach that red frog

  • the beach is beautiful and the customized rainforest, which with ena it goes from the harbour. but there are big waves, it is definitely not for swimming, and dangerous currents. After the promised toxic nor žabičkách. If you want to see more beneficial is a trip from a travel agent for more places for $25, that's the way it comes out just the way there and back from Bocas to at least $16.
