Pelican Island

San Blas, Panama

Pelican Island, or Isla Pelicano, sits amid 365 islands that make up the San Blas archipelago off the Caribbean coast of Panama. The island rises just enough from the warm, clear waters to allow palm trees to grow. During the era of brigands and pirates, this small sand island would have served nicely for marooning. Today, it’s the ultimate escape. Surrounded by a tranquil sea, Pelican Island features a quaint hut and that most rare of commodities in today’s world: peace and quiet.
