BOCAS DEL DRAGO NATURE RESERVE AND 600 FEET OF PRIVATE BEACH ON ISLA COLON
This large property has been lovingly preserved over the past 20 years, as Bocas del Toro has grown up around it. The 20 hectare wonderland includes 600 feet of private beach and 7 hectares of nature reserve all road accessible and only 20 minutes from the airport.
In the Bocas del Toro Archipelago it is very rare to find sandy beachfront property that is swimmable year round. The reason for this, is that it’s the exposure to the rough open ocean that washes in sand and creates environments unwelcoming to mangrove seedlings, leaving golden spaces for sand castles and sunbathing. The majority of these sought after sandy spots on the Bocas coast are perfect for surfers and not so great for lazy swims or floating about.
Uniquely, the beach at the Bocas del Drago Reserve breaks this rule of thumb! Facing the open ocean, the beach has a thriving reef system that acts as a barrier to the rough seas, keeping the water calm and pristine all year round. So calm that you can, in fact, keep a boat here!
Lucky for the surfers, there is a surf break on the opposite side of the reef, making this location on the popular Isla Colon, an ideal place for an ecological accommodation for travelers seeking the best of both beachy worlds.
From the land facing west are views of the mainland & Panama’s highest mountain Volcan Baru. The property begins only 2 minutes off of the paved road leading to town. There are many building sites to discover and inspire your off grid development. The property has its own fresh water steam and spring.
The Bocas del Drago Reserve and Private Beach is perfect for a high-end Eco-Retreat:
Other hotel investors and developers have seen the potential in the area and are leading Bocas del Toro into a new grade of refined tourism. On the mainland, directly across the Drago channel from the Bocas del Drago Reserve and Private Beach, is a Viceroy Hotel underway and scheduled to open at the end of 2022.
