Shelter Bay Marina is a undiscovered gem in the Caribbean side of the Panama Canal for those who transit and live in their boats. The place has spectacular views and with a new management team, a new attitude and a overhaul in the restaurant, this place might just be a perfect hidden getaway.
Shelter Bay Marina offers an unspoiled natural setting with easy access to Colon and Panama City. Featuring slips for vessels up to 245 feet, in an "all weather" protected bay. Shelter Bay is in a controlled access area, providing the best security for you and your boat. The new manager was telling me about boats that have been there for more than 5 years.
The marina provides free transportation to "Cuatro Altos" shopping center in our air conditioned 27 passenger bus at 8:00am Monday through Fridays. The bus leaves from the shopping center at 11:15 am to return back to the marina.
We sat in the restaurant and ordered 3 plates of food and drinks. The portions were adequate, the service was exceptional and the price was reasonable. I definitely will return to Shelter Bay Marina after the new chef creates his new Fusion menu.
