Nomad is located between two famous surf breaks on Isla Colon: Tiger Tail and Paunch. We’re in the jungle, just steps away from the shallow reef shoreline. Please understand world class surf beaches aren’t always great places to swim. This beach has reef and rock on it for a perfect left and right reef break. There are swimming beaches located about a 15-20 minute walk from our lodge, but the beaches right in front of us are for surfing.
We are bias, but Nomad’s neighborhood is one of the best on the island. This neighborhood is an active surf and expat community that enjoys being 6km outside of Bocas Town. Our neighborhood starts where the paved road ends. We have some great restaurants and bars within walking distance:
- About 5 minutes walking distance, to the left of us, you will find Paunch Beach Club. They are open from 10am-6pm and serve great food and drinks right on the surf peach, so you can eat and watch the surfers.
- About 5 minutes walking distance, to the right of us, is another beach bar and restaurant called Paki Point, open from 11am to 7pm. They have an awesome beach deck and bed/loungers for watching surfers while enjoying their cold drinks and food.
- Walk 15 minutes from Nomad and you will find the best wood fire pizza on the island at Ciao Pizza.
- Across the street from Ciao is Skully’s pirate bar and restaurant.
