Pearl Cays in Nicaragua

The Pearl Cays are a group of 18 untouched tropical islands located 35 kilometers offshore from Pearl Lagoon on the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua.

The islands are also nesting sites for the hawks bill turtle an endangered species. 


Getting there: There is a flight direct from Managua to Bluefields, about 1 hour flight.

From there a panga ride from Pearl Lagoon is the only way to go, the ride is less than an hour. On the way to the Pearl Cays, it is usually possible to see dolphins.

Visitors can enjoy their private tropical island maybe sunbathing on the beach, reading a book under a palm tree or swimming in the warm, clear Caribbean water. The clear water is ideal snorkeling and even spear-fishing.

Another option is to do some fishing around the islands. Small and large tropical fish are plentiful in these rich waters, and fish like grunt and snapper can all be found here. The freshly caught fish can be cooked on the beach for you.

Other islands be reached by boat, but depending on the location it is possible to swim to another island.
