Tour Pearl Islands Panama

TOP 5 ISLANDS OF THE PEARL ISLANDS – Tour Pearl Islands, Panama

When doing a tour of Pearl Islands Panama, make sure to visit our top islands! The Pearl Islands Archipelago is composed of around 200 islands and islets, of which more than half are unnamed. The group of islands stretches from North to South, located 35 nautical miles from Panama City on a 120® course (southeast) comprised of warm, clear tropical waters.

This Archipelago is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the East Pacific. While some islands are rugged with tall cliffs, others offer instant daydreaming white sand pristine beaches.

Here’s our captain’s selection of favorite islands to add to your bucket list while in Panama. You might as well go visit all of them on board with us! A tour of the Pearl Islands is not complete without checking out a few of them:

Contadora Island:

This list must start with Contadora; even though it’s not the biggest island, it is considered the principal island of the Pearl Islands Archipelago. For instance, it has a paved landing strip, beautiful mansions in between the trees, several restaurants and hotels, and houses available for rentals. Rent a golf car and cruise along the different beaches.

Chapera Island:

Located south of Contadora Island, the island has one of the most famous sand bars of the Pearls. It combines a gorgeous white sand beach, nice shaded trees, and an amazing sand bottom deep enough for mega yacht anchorage. This is a great island to visit when on a tour of the Pearl Islands, as it offers calm seas and beautiful scenery.

Las Perlas

Bartolome Island:

Named after Bartolome de Las Casas (Cristopher Colombus’ expedition navigator), this island is magical. It is, above all, easy to walk or swim around. It has three beautiful white sand beaches divided by a flat rock that turns into a reef once it enters the crystal clear water.

Las Perlas

Caracol Beach:

Located on what can be considered the center of the Pearl Islands, this beautiful tidal sand bar has the softest sand of the Pearls. Deep waters encircle this sand bar, making it easy to anchor any size boat. Due to its distance from The South islands, it’s not as visited as the other islands and is therefore ideal for those lonely getaways. Playa Caracol is not an official name, and compared to the other islands shown in this article, don’t count on it appearing on navigation charts!

Boya Arena Island:

Also a tidal island a bit bigger than Playa Caracol, which means some rock formations on the surroundings famous for monster oysters so take limes when you visit this island (your captain will nonetheless make sure to have on board!) Above all, make sure you come on a low rising tide. This island actually has a little rocky formation that is the only formation that can be seen with high tide.

  1. Dear Panama Gem Charters,
    do you offer a day tour to the Las Perlas islands? How much would it be for a group of 7 to 12 people, does that fit on one boat? And do you offer the tour each day? We would like to do it on a Monday (9th of January)
    Happy New Year and regards from Germany,
    Luisa
