18 million yards of rock extracted from the construction of Panama canal was the material used to create the Causeway. It connects three small islands, Noas, Perico and Flamenco with the mainland. It was initially built as a breakwater to protect the entrance to the canal. It then became a recreational area for the US militaries and civilians, but Panamanians were not allowed...! Today it is the pride of the city. A picturesque paved pathway along the causeway with palm trees and benches is perfect for strolls with beautiful views to the Canal and the surrounding area. Nice restaurants, shopping centers and marinas provide the infrastructure for the attraction of both tourists and locals. Its Flamenco Marina Resort is the biggest and most complete marina for luxury yachts in Panama. International boats are moored or being traded there. On Noas island you will find the Marine Exhibition Center of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, where you can see and learn more about the local marine life.
