About Pearl Islands

Just a 15 minute plane ride from Panama City lie the exotic Pearl Islands. You can still buy pearls today, but the major attraction of this archipelago are its picturesque aqua waters, lush vegetation, fascinating marine life and lovely sparsely populated beaches.
A virtual pirate’s treasure of lush green islands, sandy shores, blue green water, and cozy covers lays only 47km(40miles) or 15 minutes by plane, from panama City. The Archipelago de Las Perlas is made up of more than 220 islands and islets, only 90 of which are named. These islands first gained notoriety in 1513 within days of Vasco Nuñez de Balboa’s discovery of the “South Sea” or Pacific Ocean. It is said that he encountered a group of Indians resplendent in pearls paddling peral encrusted boats who told him of the islands and their rich pearl beds. Although he never actually went to the islands, he named them “Islas de Las Perlas” (Pearl Islands) and claimed them for the King of Spain.
