Playa Las Lajas, an unspoiled beach!!
Playa Las Lajas is one of the most beautiful beaches of Panama. Between the 2 rivers ‘El Rio San Felix’ and ‘La Boca de Pena’ you can walk for about 12 kilometers on soft light colored sand. Most of the beach is still undeveloped, alined with palm trees and gives you a unique natural tropical experience. With impressive views on the island dotted ocean and formations of pelicans above the mellow waves.
Panamanians love to visit their favorite Playa on sundays and national holidays. Those days certain public areas can get crowded, but you will always find kilometers of beach with nobody close by!
Playa Las Lajas is ideal for both chilling out or doing nothing as well as doing activities like hiking, horseback riding, fishing, body boarding, swimming and sea-kayaking. While the real surfer dudes go to Santa Catalina, you can ride some pretty good waves here. Because of its broad expanse, the beach is perfect for kids to play on, and it is safe to enjoy the wide shallow bank of the ocean.
Behind the beach you will find an intriguing world of mangroves, wetlands and estuaries with an interesting bird and marine life. Birders are enthusiastic about the variety of feathered creatures one encounters in the surroundings of Playa Las Lajas.

Last but not least: do not miss the spectacular sunsets and the full moons in summer time!!!!!
