Sailing Holiday in Las Perlas - Tour Description
Among the 39 islands of the archipelago, three stand out. According to their territorial extension, the following are classified: Isla del Rey, the second largest island in Panama; San José Island, which is the second largest in the archipelago and the seventh nationwide; and Contadora Island, located to the north and the most visited by foreigners. However, the classification according to the tourist services offered is different.
Contadora Island is the only destination that is equipped for tourists. Its population is small, as is its area of 1.2 square kilometers, so no cars are used. They all move on foot or in golf carts.
Contadora offers excellent beaches and safe swimming spots. Its exclusivity helped it to allocate a portion of its beaches to nudism, Las Suecas. And although its title is “naturist beach”, that is, it is considered an optional nudism beach.
Isla San José, although larger than Contadora, is reserved for luxury resorts. Arriving travelers have the island’s beauty to themselves.
Isla del Rey is the largest island in the archipelago and also has the largest number of inhabitants in its town which is home to two thousand people. On the island there is the airport, but almost no development or tourism.
Other islands that make up the archipelago are: Casayeta, La Mina, Pacheca, Gibraleón, Viveros, Casaya, Bayoneta, Galera, Mogo Mogo, Cañas and San Telmo.
