Flamenco Island, Panama
Flamenco Island is one of four small islands called the Causeway Islands, located by the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal. The islands are linked to the mainland by a causeway, known as the Amador Causeway, made from rock extracted during the excavations of the Panama Canal.
Visitors can access the attractions of Panama City and the Panama canal, as well as fine dining along the Causeway and the chance to enjoy outdoor activities such as jogging, biking, rollerblading, or fishing, all with Panama City’s skyline as backdrop.
