There have been several human chapters in the long lifespan of our island in Panama. Our story is just one of many woven into the sacred history of Isla Palenque. On this expedition, you’ll discover the Secrets of the Island with your Island Guide. You’ll hike through a maze of jungle trails and rare primary forest, and delve deeper into the island’s beauty and mystery. How did Isla Palenque form? Why were ancient cultures drawn to the island? What clues of their existence did they leave behind?
Discover the Secrets of the Island, and become part of Isla Palenque’s privileged legacy. Isla Palenque was a National Geographic Unique Lodge. The site you will visit on the Secrets of the Island hike has been recognized as having an ancient cultural history of modern, archaeological significance.
Let’s talk about your beach strategy for a moment, because Isla Palenque has seven and they each have something unique to offer. Playa Palenque, The Heart of Isla Palenque Resort Our largest beach is Playa Palenque beach located on the West side of the island. Spanning 1.3 km of pristine coastline, Playa Palenque is the perfect spot for swimming, beach-combing and wandering. Kids and parents alike love Playa Palenque because it’s a very safe, crescent-shaped stretch of beach — the soft-sand bottom is perfect for little feet, and the waves are gentle and warm.
Many of our island hikes and nature tours begin at Playa Palenque. This is also your paddle-board launch point, and the spot where we host our island bonfires, sunset cocktails, and beach picnics. And since the beach is West-facing, you’ll have front row seats to some spectacular sunsets. Looking for a Beach of Your Own? Venture off and find the Lost Beach, where the sound of the waves is your only landmark. Or Playa Primera for watching the sunrise over the islands.
The beach at Cala Este is a great spot to explore tidal pools, and then there’s the rocky beaches of Playa Amelia and Playa Maria that can be explored during low tide. Take a kayak out to Playa Catalina, the calmest bay on the island, or go for a long jog along Playa Boca Brava.
No matter what your desire we can always plan the perfect trip, that's why clients return to this magical place.
