If you are looking to experience the natural beauty of the shores of the pacific coast in Panama, this is the place to go. Seriously.

Venao Beach is one of Panama's most beautiful beaches facing the big blue pacific ocean. Coming to Venao you will leave dusty towns behind, entering the rolling hills of the southern tip of the Peninsula of Azuero. A curvy road will take you past cowboys and rice-fields to this beautiful beach full of sun, playa venao surf and good times.

Hostel Venao Cove is located at the tip of the bay overlooking all of Venao Beach. Wake up to the sound of howling monkeys and go to sleep with the hypnotizing sound of the waves rolling onto the sand right out front. We take big pride in the property and like to think that it shows. This is a family-run- and owned venue, and you can feel it. The property itself has been left in it's original natural state as  much as possible, and since we got here we have planted many more trees, palms, neem, moringa, citrus, fruit, you name it. With its lush vegetation and numberless singing birds this tropical paradise is waiting for you to come linger in one of our hammocks, letting time take a slower pace.

Venao Cove has rooms spread out on a generous 5 hectares of beachfront paradise, with plenty of options regarding accommodations. The main-cabin accommodates two private rooms that sleep up to three guests, as well as two dormitories with eight beds each. High velocity-ceiling-fans, plenty of windows and high ceilings make for cool and comfortable rooms.

At the main-cabin you will find the social common-area and garden terrace, eqipped with lots of comfortable furniture, as well as a BBQ-shack with a hand-made pizza oven, where we have frequent nightly bon-fires under the stars. Here guests from all the accommodations, dorms, private rooms and private houses, come together to meet and mingle.

Our communal kitchen is well equipped and always kept clean and tidy by our wonderful staff.

All of our beds are of good quality - in the private rooms as well as in the dorms. Our bunks are sturdy and custom built so you won't get woken up by your bunk-buddy climbing into or out of the bed on top of you, and all our mattresses are the real deal - no back-breakers here!

We like to call Venao Cove "the quiet end of the beach", as our guests often tell us that staying here feels like you have entered a different universe all together. However, restaurants and bars are within walking-distance.
