Red Frog Beach, whose name derives from the tiny, poisonous red dart frogs that inhabit the area, is one of three beaches that stretch along Bastimentos’ northern coast. It is sandwiched between Wizard Beach to the west and Polo Beach to the east.

Red Frog is Bocas’ most popular beach and is accessible via a short trail from the island’s leeward side; you can access the beach on the windward side by boat between September-October when the sea is calmer.

Poison Dart Frogs

Poison dart frogs on many islands come in several colors, including red, orange, yellow, and blue. The color of their skin is very saturated, as depicted in these photos. As a result, you'll often see frogs exhibiting multiple colors or shades of the same color. Despite their color variations, they are all the same size, measuring between .75" and 1.5" in length.
