Las Perlas, the Finest Charter

The Archipelago of Las Perlas (The Pearl Islands) is a chest that contains pearls of rare beauty.

Washed by the waters of the Pacific Ocean in the Gulf of Panama, the Pearl Islands still remain mostly unknown to mass tourism, where only a dozen islands are permanently inhabited.

The name of the archipelago has remained unchanged since the sixteenth century when the Spaniards settled there and found an abundance of pearls in the seabed next to the islands.

 

 Over the centuries the Perlas Islands were the base of many pirates, who after having attacked the Spanish ships in the Gulf of Panama, would take refuge there to share the loot.

 

Right in the Archipelago of Las Perlas was found the largest pearl in the world, the so-called “Peregrina”, a precious 31 carat currently owned by Elizabeth Taylor.

Pearls of rare beauty

The islands are best known for their serene beauty and paradisiacal qualities, they have gorgeous white and black-sand beaches, untouched forests, and colorful coral reefs just offshore.

The islands also don’t see huge tourist crowds, so they’re a great place to come and relax. Fishing, snorkeling, and scuba diving are all popular out here. Divers have the chance of seeing white-tipped reef sharks, sea turtles, manta rays, and moray eels. Humpback whales also migrate through the Pearl Islands from July through October each year.
