The Gilbert kids caught on an arial photograph horsebacking riding on the beach in Panama – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThe best beaches closest to Volcán are due south where you’ll run into a community called La Concepción. To get to La Concepción, you’ll need to turn left on the Inter-American HIghway and travel for approximately five minutes. Once in La Concepción, turn due south, which will run you straight to La Barqueta, which is the closest beach to Volcán- approximately 50 minutes away. 
 
La Barqueta is a beautiful black sand beach. I lived in La Barqueta during my first two years here in Panama. La Barqueta is a wide-open sandy beach that runs for approximately 18 kilometers. In La Barqueta, you’ll find east to west views of the wide-open gulf of Chiriquí. At La Barqueta, you’ll find the Las Olas Beach Resort and four other very small, typical mom and pop restaurants that are right directly on the beach and serve your typical Caribbean-style fish, even though it’s on the Pacific.
