Red Frog Beach

Located on Isla Bastimentos, Red Frog Beach is home to the strawberry poison dart frog, a small red spotted frog that the local boys carry around frogand show to tourists in exchange for a quarter.  A 10-minute boat ride from Isla Colón, Isla Bastimentos is made up of mostly wilderness beaches.  The island’s southern coast falls within the boundaries of the Parque Nacional Marina Isla Bastimentos.  Nearly all of the island’s beaches remain virtually abandoned, though this is expected to change due to the fact that, despite local opposition, construction of a massive residential development project on the island is well underway.
