Discover two of the most spectacular places in Bocas del Toro on this day trip: crystal clear sea, lush jungle and paradise white sand await you at Starfish Beach and Bird Island!
Bocas del Toro: Starfish Beach & Bird Island Tour
At 9:30 am on the morning of your day trip, we'll pick you from your hotel on Isla Colón, the main island of Bocas del Toro. From there, we'll head to the Bocas Marine Pier, where a boat will be waiting to take us to two of the most beautiful places in Panama: Starfish Beach and Bird Island. Ready for an adventure in paradise?
We'll cruise across the crystal clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea in the direction of Playa de las Estrellas, a beach located on the opposite side of Isla Colón to Bocas Town, and so named for the abundance of starfish, or "estrellas", that live here. This little corner of paradise is one of the most popular beaches in Bocas del Toro, and you'll soon see why as you step foot on its soft white sand and take in the views.
You'll have four hours of free time to enjoy this magical place, swim and snorkel amongst the starfish or simply sunbathe on the sand.
We'll then return to the boat for the journey over to Isla Pájaros or Bird Island, a tiny islet that has become a sanctuary for tropical birds. See if you can spot the different species of native and migratory birds that live here, like pelicans, frigates, gannets and even red-billed tropicbirds, famous for their long tail feathers.
You'll be enchanted by the massive coral reefs visible in the sparkling emerald waters and the lush vegetation on the island - a true delight! After filling your cameras with beautiful photos, we'll make the return journey to your hotel on Isla Colón for around 3:30 pm.
