Isla Grande

Isla Grande (beach) – this beach, located on the country’s Atlantic coast, is 1 ½ hour drive from Panama City (via highway), past the famous ruins and Black Christ at Portobelo, to a small town called La Guaira. From here a wooden canoe with an outboard motor will take you to the island—the 10-minute trip costs $2. This is another Panamanian beach destination that’s still untouched by mass tourism, and attracts those looking for the simple life.
