The Canal and Central Panama Sights

Playa Langosta

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 08/12/2012

Fodor's Review

The easiest beach to visit in the vicinity is Playa Langosta, which is about 8 km (5 mi) south of Portobelo. The long, beige beach backed by coconut palms and other trees is quiet during the week, but on weekends and holidays, it can get packed with visitors from Colón and Panama City. There is a small charge for parking a car and renting tables on the beach with thatched sombrillas. Restaurant Mamani, on the beach, serves a small selection of seafood and cool drinks, and has the only bathrooms. Amenities: food and drink; parking; toilets. Best for: partiers, swimming, walking.
