We like the island because is a short trip around an hour by boat to get there for a reasonable price! The beach was more polluted that the last time that I went. There is not much to do besides laying under the sun or swimming but the walk around the town show you beautiful houses with flowers. The restaurants... More

Well, I didn't think this day trip was all that. The $20 rt ferry ride was quick and comfy. Once on the island, you must pay for everything. Bathroom use for the day = $2. Two plastic beach loungers with umbrella = $15. Snorkel gear = $5. Beach towel rental = $3. There are several restaurants; a fish lunch with... More

Not much to do unless you enjoy laying on a hot beach. Umbrellas and chairs are for rent by the day (no hourly rate), but provide minimal protection from the intense sun. The water is not as clean and clear as the posted photos,

Worst beach ever. Filled with stones...it was a frightful experience going into the water. I stumped my toe because there were so many stones and rocks, it was difficult to navigate in the warer. I didn't even bother to try swimming much less snorkeling. It was a waste of my time and money.

Going here for a day beach it is a waste of time and money as is not much you can do there and the two restaurants near the beach does not look as a safe place to eat. This beach is an outdated beach with some wooden structures along the ruins that surround the beach, that are used by locals... More

Nick named the Island of Flowers and as mentioned by others is a 30 minutes ferry ride from Balboa Yacht Club on the Amador Causeway, located on the river side not far from the Americas bridge. The 11 am ferry out and 4pm back will give you plenty of time to explore and have lunch. Unless you like the beach,... More

We took the ferry from Balboa Yacht Club - quite an informal set-up at the pier but fairly well organised, and the 30-minute boat ride was exhilarating (we took the fast ferry - there's also a slower one). (Note, the security police on the pier ask for passports or ID - we didn't have any and got through ok though).... More

Taboga Island Beaches are the nicest beaches on the Pacific side that I have seen so far. The Island is easy to walk and you have a few choices of restaurants and beaches. My suggestion is to make a right as soon as you get off the boat and heat towards the beaches. You can pick up beer for a... More

Well, you can go there. Then you can sit and eat. Then you go back. I really missed a bit on the action there. I have visited San Blas and Bocas del Toro as well. This island has a lot of potential. The guys holding their hands up for 15 US$ for a beach where they don't clean up the... More
