Cebaco Island: An Emerald in Panama

Monday, April 15th, 2013

Just off Panama’s Pacific coast, nestled between nationally protected marine areas in the Gulf of Montijo, is tropical Cebaco Island. With its rolling hills, palm-fringed coves, sandy beaches, cascading waterfalls, and dramatic rock formations, this 3706-acre island is a world of its own. Seen from above, the island looks like an emerald set in a sea of sapphire. Facing the open Pacific on the island’s Southwestern side is Cebaco Private Biosphere, a unique real-estate opportunity.

The island rises 349 m above sea level. Large swaths of its terrain are covered in dense rainforest. The northern shore hosts a small fishing community. Over two dozen tranquil bays and beaches lie hidden along the property’s 12,000 m of winding coastline. The hills offer panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and mainland.

A small portion of the property hosts an innovative reforestation project using exclusively native hardwood species. The four bedroom beachhouse on Playa El Cedro has sweeping ocean views along a private beach. Despite the fact that the island is less than 10 km offshore and a short flight from Panama City, the island maintains a feeling of seclusion and privacy.

Humpback and sperm whales migrate through the area and four species of turtles, giant manta rays and dolphins can be spotted just offshore.
