      PINK PEARL ISLAND is a 2.5 acre private tropical Caribbean island, located approximately 3 miles from mainland off of the Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua, Central America. The island is surrounded with turquoise water and powder white sand. Its coconut trees and native fauna are protected from high seas by surrounding reefs and outlying islands. This Caribbean coast of Nicaragua is often referred to as 'the undiscovered Caribbean' and the country as a whole 'the next Costa-Rica' with great investment opportunities. Pink Pearl Island is situated among a group of coral islands, which have to be the most attractive, desirable destination in Nicaragua. The sparkling blue ocean is scuba virgin water with pristine reefs, making it an ideal location for diving and snorkeling. Pink Pearl Island is currently mainly used as a personal retreat; it is however full set up to operate as a successful tourist business. The island would be an excellent location to set up the first Dive shop in the area, or indeed a sport fishing business. Kayaking, fishing, snorleking, swimming at the white sand beach, all included. We offer fresh lobsler, fish and jumbo shrimp meals
