Las Lajas Beach in Panama is a ten miles long, unspoiled, sandy beach that sits between the estuary of two major rivers of Chiriqui; Rio San Felix and Rio San Juan. Probably the most stunning and wild beach in Panama. Wild scenery, barren mountains, azure waters and fine sand, as far as the eye can see. But the warm sand and salty sea breezes are just the beginning. The area is home to a wide selection of attractions for every age and every taste, including, lagoon hiking and exploration, birdwatching, surfing, horseback riding, fishing.
The best thing about Las Lajas Beach is that you don’t have to do anything to enjoy it. Sure, you can swim or surf or fish, depending on your liking. But you can also just sit. And watch. And listen… the waterfront provides a soothing backdrop for a relaxing vacation.
The intriguing mangrove lagoon and creeks to the north of the beach beckon to be explored to enjoy the plethora of bird and marine life. Panama is one of the most interesting destinations in the world for bird watchers. Birders will be enthused about the variety of feathered creatures one encounters in Las Lajas Beach and surroundings.
