For being among the most famous beaches in Panama, Red Frog Beach is only .75 miles wide. At each end of this beach there is a rock-peninsula outcropping. At the east end of the beach there is a hidden boardwalk to a pier at the end of the peninsula. The view from this boardwalk called “the point” is absolutely breathtaking with waves splashing all around and white foam dripping from the rock outcroppings. From this view point one can look back down at Red Frog Beach and see the beautiful frame of the rainforest that makes this Panama Beach so secluded and different that a typical beach.
Red Frog also has a new Beach Bar and lounge area called Punta Lava along with an activity center that includes surf boards, paddleboards, kayaks & boogie boards.
