The Pearl Cays (Spanish: Cayos de Perlas) is a group of 18 cays located about 35 kilometers from Laguna de Perlas offshore the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua.[1] They are part of the RAAS autonomous region. The Pearl Cays are covered with vegetation and are lined with white sand beaches. They are also an important nesting site for turtles, including the endangered Hawksbill turtle.[2]
