Mamey Island is one my favorites for many reasons: is a true paradise, crystal clear turqoise waters, lots of palm trees, short and sweet boat ride and you don't have to wake up at 5 am to go.
This is the perfect spot for families with kiddos.
The whole trip is very enjoyable. A quick stop to check out the World Heritage Site of Portobelo and the Black Christ as an added bonus. Then, a boat ride to the island of less than 15 minutes. We may see spider monkeys.
The island has what you need: bathrooms, an outdoor shower, beach chairs, coconut palm trees and the real caribbean feeling.
The locals love it and they will be around with their loud music sometimes and you will experience The Real Panama right there.
I am very proud of showing off this island in my province of Colon which is very clean, well kept and have the personalized attention of my friends: El Profe, Bebito, Alex and the best: Don Carlos. Their service is outstanding.
Mamey Island is located 1 hr and 35 minutes away from Panama City.
