Off the country’s north coast, in the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea, lies the extensive Bocas del Toro archipelago, located at the entrance to Chiriquí Lagoon. Composed of nine islands, 51 keys and over 200 islets, the archipelago shines with clear blue waters, a beautiful collection of coral reefs and beaches that serve as breeding grounds for many species of marine and terrestrial life. These protected areas are vital for the preservation of sea turtles and the endangered manatee. Some favorite beaches for relaxing and sun bathing are La Cabaña Beach on Colón Island and Boca del Drago Beach in Bocas del
Toro Province. Among the beautiful beaches of western Panama Province are Cermeño, Gorgona, Coronado and Punta Barco beaches, which sparkle with both white and black sands.
The southern coast is on the Pacific Ocean and offers visitors the opportunity to experience exceptional mangroves, which are the ideal habitat for the initial stages of development of shrimp, other crustaceans and mollusks. The “Isla de Caña” wildlife refuge receives thousands of sea turtles, which come to lay their eggs between August and November, making the area an attraction well worth seeing. The southern coast is also known for its popular beaches. Among them, Las Lajas, El Palmar, Río Mar and Santa Catalina beaches in Veraguas Province–the latter is the perfect spot for surfing.
