My favorite spot was at the end of the causeway. The last island Isla Flamingo. Worth seeing more than once. Sit, have a coffee and watch the world from a distance. Most charming.

Jets out into the Pacific for a lovely view of ships waiting to enter the Canal or a bike ride. Check out the yachts!

One of the must see places. The main road is being expanded thus some areas are not easy to access but soon it will be finished. It gives an amazing watching view over the canal on one side, and on the city from the other side. There are many restaurants and other attractions all along.

Definitely get out to the causeway. The third island, Flamingos, has a very nice restaurant, Alfredo's, overlooking the marina. Very good Italian food and drink; friendly service. And an exciting view of the city skyline.

Nice views of Panama City, area was under construction so there's a few confusing detours. We had lunch at Mi Ranchito which was very good!

We rented a car for one day to visit the Unesco sites(Panama Viejo, and Portobelo National Park), and to drive this causeway. It's about 6.5km from the PanAmerican Highway and too hot to walk in the heat of the day. We stopped at the colorful BioMuseum to walk its canal promenade, then drove to the end at Isla Flamenco's Fuerte... More
