Spectacular white sand deserted beaches & calm turquoise waters
The legendary Pearl Islands got their name from an Indian King who ruled in pre-Columbian times and whose main occupation was pearl diving. Pearls were then used as ornaments and to trade. Of course the Pearl Islands awoke the greed of the Spaniards. Vasco Nuñez de Balboa was the first attracted by its wealth in gold and pearls. Later in history, the Pearl Islands sheltered famous pirates of different nationalities that for several centuries looted the wealthy Spanish settlements and fleets.
On your getaway vacation you will discover these islands even more beautiful than rare pearls. An abundant quantity of white, black and golden beaches and coves surround the lush and green islands embedded between the temperate and calm turquoise waters of the Pacific Ocean. Many fresh water rivers and streams flow into the ocean creating a food source for many species of fish. This provides excellent opportunities for exciting inshore fishing.
