Sublocality Level 1
“Es una playa con una belleza que te deja sin aliento. Su mar turquesa y sus Olas impactantes en la orilla hacen de Bluff un lugar perfecto para broncearse tranquilamente y disfrutar de una de las Olas mas pesadas de Bocas del Toro. Mucha precaución al nadar por las corrientes de resaca y evitar nadar en temporada de Olas de Diciembre a Mayo (ha cobrado varias vidas en los últimos 5 años) . Por eso se recomienda sólo para Surfear (sin Leach) o partes tu tabla. Y para nadar sólo a finales de Septiembre, Octubre y mediados de Noviembre. ”

“Bluff Beach. Rent a bike or take the bus from the Bocas Town Park to get there. Very scenic beach. Large waves.”

“This is a cute inn on Bluff Beach run by a couple relocated from England. They do a nice job with the food and are pretty much always open and serving, because they have to feed their guest!”

“Lovely place, great food and vibe, the "refined" surf crowd tends to stay here, probably because of proximity to good waves.”

“IF we didn't own a house on Isla Colon, this is where we'd want to stay! Instead we just go and eat a fabulous dinner there or use their beach with beach bar for the day. No charge, just buy some beverages!”

Point of Interest
“Best sandy beach nearby- 15 mins away via taxi or ATV. Beautiful, clear, blue water and white sand. Most fun to rent an ATV to go up there. Restaurant up there is charming. *Dangerously large waves breaking close to shore during surf season. ”

Natural Feature
Resort
“Es una hermosa y extensa playa de arena dorada, rodeada de una tupida selva. Normalmente se pueden ver y escuchar las familias de monos aulladores recorriendo las ramas de los arboles. Hay algunos restaurantes sobre la playa que ofrecen comidas y servicios de bar durante todo el dia. Es ideal para caminar por la playa o pasear en bicicleta o cuatriciclo por los senderos internos. Recomendamos tener especial cuidado al bañarse si la marea esta alta, nunca esta de mas consultar a alguien local antes de ingresar al mar en esta zona. ”

“11 km de pura playa. Donde las tortugas vienen para depositar los huevos y por estos hay que estar cuidado donde van! pero te queda en la memoria para siempre”
