"Pacific Beaches" Panama Things to Do Tip by Fantasmine

Panama Things to Do: 234 reviews and 444 photos


If you like to enjoy the beach , do snorkelling or scuba diving, you should know that Panama is the only place where you can dive in both Pacific and Atlantic Ocean and enjoy the depths of the Panama Canal all in the same day!
There are 700 kilometres of coast on the Pacific side of Panama, here you are more likely to find sparkling black sand beaches as Coronado with a five star Hotel & Resort, Gorgona, Corona, Farallón, Punta Chame, etc.
There are a lot of virgin places and desert islands perfect for scuba diving such as Isla Coiba, Isla Iguana, Isla Cañas and beaches to enjoy surfing like Santa Catalina Beach and El Palmar. Other interesting places in the Pacific are Contadora Island where you can find a very convenient all-included resort or Taboga Island very near the city with a vessel that departs daily.
