The Canal and Central Panama Sights

Playa Larga

Updated 08/14/2012

Fodor's Review

Contadora's longest beach, Playa Larga, stretches along the island's eastern end, in front of the now-demolished Hotel Contadora—the island's original resort. Its a lovely strip of ivory sand, backed by coconut palms, Indian almonds, and other trees, but the ruins of the hotel and the abandoned boat at one end give it a forlorn feel. At high tide, it's a mere sliver of sand, whereas at low tide, massive black rocks are exposed. The water can be murky, so it usually isn't good for snorkeling. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude, swimming, walking.
