With an overcast sky, cloudy water and the 5 meter low tide exposing large areas of sand, the anchorages around the southern parts of Las Perlas islands have more of the feel of a UK estuary than a tropical island, aside from the temperature being 26 degrees.
At Isla Bayoneta we took the dinghy along to the southern beach, where there were lots of shells but no large cowries as advertised. The swell was too much to land on the exposed west side of the island where the best shells were supposed to be.
