Come here to eat!
Dec 2020
The restaurant on this island is the best thing about it. We had to come here to take the boat to Isla Iguana. After a day on the beach, the red snapper here really hits the spot. Seasoned and fried to perfection!

Amazing!

The beach is so plentiful one just wants to stay there. On my visit the swimming activity was canceled due to weather, yet I could still enjoy the view, the fresh air and the wholeness of the place.

Fisherman access only
Aug 2020 • Solo
Good place for catching a panga to go fishing. You better have a 4x4 to go done to the beach or you will get stuck for sure. The restroom is not functional that I could see and no other facilities for the public. Fisherman only would describe this place unless you are renting a boat to go to Isla iguana.

Beautiful long beach
Jan 2020
We walked to this beach twice from the town of Pedasi. Walking at a leisure pace takes about 30 min. The sand is fine and you can walk along the beach almost endlessly. It is very clean. There are a couple of beach bars, we did have a lunch at one. There are numerous boats for hire, but because it was quite windy we did not take one.

La Isla Iguana with Captain Dago
Jul 2019 • Family
A day trip to la Isla Iguana with Captain Dago was the highlight of our trip. The boat ride in itself was joyful and we saw a sea turtle and had a few whale sightings in the distance. Captain Dago pointed out a good spot to set up and was nearby while we snorkeled and saw many fish. The way home was a super treat! Captain Dago found two groups of whales and went along with them so that we could see them surface many times.

We loved being out with Dago so much we went back another day just for whale watching and we saw about a dozen, pretty close up. They were very playful and our captain knew how to get close without disturbing them at all.

The experience was priceless!!

Our Favorite Beach Near Pedasi!
May 2019 • Couples
We moved to Pedasi three short months ago and find ourselves here at Playa Arenal often. In the early morning you see the local fishing boats pushing off, and later in the day you see them return with happy fishermen and a whole lot of fish. If you like, you can get a boat ride over to Isla Iguana and snorkel and swim for the day. We love the long quiet beach with it's calm shoreline. The water temperature is always set to warm and the water feels amazing to just float and relax in all day. On holidays the beach fills up with visitors from all around Panama, and then vendors selling their tastey food or homemade wares set up and make the beach a party. Whether you come with the crowds or pick a day where you are the only ones there, it's an enjoyable place to be.
