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.
