Beach

Coiba, located south of the province of Veraguas, is the country’s largest island. Due to the state of conservation of its coral reefs and the broad, exuberant biodiversity of both its animals and plants, it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Visitors may take eco-tours, do some maritime tourism and water sports, or simply enjoy the beach and the contact with nature. It is also worth noting that the island also contains the abandoned remains of the former penal colony that was once established there.
