Red Frog Beach Review

Remarkable natural beauty and relative accessibility (a five-minute walk from a dock) combine to make Red Frog Beach one of the most popular spots in Bocas del Toro. The beach is almost a mile long, with golden sand backed by coconut palms, Indian almond trees, and other tropical greenery. It's the perfect spot for lounging on the sand, playing in the sea, and admiring the amazing scenery. Red Frog has, unfortunately, become a victim of its own popularity with a 170-acre condo devlopment and a 150-boat marina under construction. Red Frog is usually a good swimming beach, but when the surf's up, rip currents can make it dangerous, so don't go beyond waist-deep if the waves are big.

    Combination of rainforest and stunning beaches

    Red Frog Beach changed ownership in 2008 and has built a small resort with 40 homes and emphasizes the natural amenities like hiking trails and the zipline. Two restaurants, island activity center for tours and events and 4 different beaches that one can explore. The Beach homes are very nice with stunning views, private pools and full kitchens.
