For the first time in 35 years, a trio of secluded isles near Panama is coming to market. The three islands—Bayoneta, Cañas and La Caida, collectively known as the Cayonetas Islands—are located in Panama’s Las Perlas archipelago. Totaling 1,800 acres of land and 50 beaches spread across 19 miles of coastline, the isles provide a private slice of paradise ready for a conscientious buyer. Currently undeveloped and uninhabited, the pristine islands are being offered by Pangea World, a transnational foundation that focuses on conservation, scientific discovery, sustainable development, and eco-conscious tourism.

After buying the islands (listed at $100 million), the future owner will have the chance to work closely with Pangea World to bring their unique vision for the properties to life, whether that entails building villas, a private compound, or an environmentally friendly resort. Up to 30 percent of the land is eligible for development, while 70 percent must remain a nature preserve. Home to four species of turtles, 12 subspecies of birds not found on the mainland, and archeological sites studying the indigenous people who lived on the islands in pre-Columbian times, the property offers a remarkable opportunity to shepherd islands brimming with scientific and historical importance.
