Day 148 of 365 Things To Do in Panama
Day 148 of 365 Things To Do in Panama. Hang out at Starfish Beach!
Unlike any other beach in Bocas del Toro, Starfish Beach (or “Playa Estrella”) is located on the remote, unexposed side of Isla Colón. The shoreline is shaped like a bay, so it doesn’t catch any swell – making for placid turquoise waters and a relaxed vibe. There is room for a volleyball court, a couple small restaurants, and the newest addition to the beach activities – along with kayaks and floating lounge chairs – are the water bikes. You can rent them by the hour and peddle your way up and down the shore line and over to the mangroves, getting a clear view of the hundreds of starfish lazing the day away in the calm, shallow waters. Wakeboarding behind a ponga boat is also a must-try for those feeling adventurous.
