The San Bernardo Islands are a national park the reefs are protected by law and the Area is almost uninhabitated and there is no mayor tourism in the Area.This means that there are no "blackwatergenerators" like towns, hotels etc. The coastline is covered by virgin mangroves the breeding place for millions of tropical reef fish.Where currents accumulate the corraline sand in front of the mangroves, there are wonderfull tropical beaches with palmtrees this is the case in White Sands Beach. Due to the Mangroves the marine live in the reefs is extraordinary rich by far better than in commercialized caribbean destinations where the mangroves has been dried out to win land for construction. This is maybe the last destination in the caribbean where you can see reef sharks without feeding sessions.
