Once travelers have gotten their fill of Panama City’s urban streets, they can escape to the white sandy beaches and palm tree-lined shores of picturesque Isla Grande. The ideal place for visitors to slow down and sink in to real life relaxation, this destination offers crystal clear waters perfect for snorkeling, SCUBA diving or just taking a dip and soaking up the sun.
Travelers can enjoy local cuisine and fresh fish cooked with island flavors at one of the numerous roadside restaurants. Scenic boat tours through lush mangroves showcase the natural beauty of this popular island destination and private hotel beaches provide picturesque escapes that are slightly off the beaten path, free of heavy foot traffic and hawkers selling local goods.
Isla Grande is located 15 km off the coast of Portobelo. Travelers should be advised that the island experiences heavy (thought short-lived) rains year round.
