Introducing Pearl Island: A Natural Paradise in the Tropical Gulf of Panama…
a serene Pacific island that is being sensitively transformed into a luxurious 5 star sustainable hideaway. One of the few remaining untouched havens in the world, Pearl Island offers the chance to live a perfect private island existence complemented by a range of fully managed services.

Leading luxury resort investor and developer Dolphin Capital Investors are working together with Panamanian based Grupo Eleta to deliver a low density, premium luxury, sustainable real estate and leisure development. Just an hour by boat from the buzzing Panama City, offering 30 km of unspoilt coastline and 14 private sandy beaches, Pearl Island represents probably the largest luxury private island development in Central America. 75% of this historic 6,000 year old island will remain untouched, abundant in rich flora and fauna.

A select number of beautifully positioned home sites and cliff-top ocean-fronting villas are now available for sale within a handful of thoughtfully designed neighbourhoods in the initial Founders’ Phase of the development; the Cueva Peninsula. Home sites will range from 1-2 acres in size and have been inspired by their topographical setting affording magnificent views and optimal privacy. The sites can be developed to create bespoke homes subject to the island’s already established architectural and landscape guidelines. In addition, a limited number of two, three and four bedroom villas will be built on the cliffs around the beach club to exceptional sustainability standards and can be purchased on a turn-key basis.

Boasting fourteen white sand bays discreetly scattered between 3,000 acres (or 15 km2) of tropical rainforest and one of the most spectacular ecosystems in the world, Pearl Island is also home to an array of treasured species including humpback whales, over 700 species of tropical fish, turtles and a rare iguana. It also has a history that dates back almost 6,000 years and was a destination once revered for its abundant pearl farming.

Set to become one of the globe’s next luxury hotspots thanks to the innovative and intricate development that is sensitively transforming this serene haven into an exemplary 5 star destination, Pearl Island will offer every imaginable luxury to owners and visitors. Just some of the amenities being carefully crafted into the landscape will be a gym, kids’ club, tennis courts, state of the art equestrian centre, ocean-front beach club, spa and marina.

Dedicated to conservation, the developers of Pearl Island have also created the not-for-profit Island Foundation. Funded by a percentage of property sales, it sponsors numerous projects to protect the island’s precious biodiversity including turtle tagging and whale shark preservation whilst helping to re-establish the natural pearl farming industry that the island was once famed for.

Only an hour by boat and twenty minutes by air from booming Panama City, Pearl Island has the added benefit of being on the doorstep of one of Central America’s most exciting metropolis. This captivating city offers buzzing nightlife, varied restaurants, a lively art scene and a charming colonial centre for residents to enjoy. Furthermore, Panama’s stable government and currency as well as profitable tax advantages make this an appealing destination for overseas buyers.
