Corn Islands & the Caribbean

Approximately 90 kilometres off the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua lie the Corn Islands.  Once a haven for buccaneers these islands offer white sand beaches and turquoise waters alongside a cultural experience. The majority of services can be found on Corn Island which is the arrival point for flights from the mainland. However, seven kilometres north east of Corn Island is Little Corn.

Why Visit Little Corn Island

Little Corn Island is a jewel of the Caribbean.  Powdery beaches and crystal clear waters. Just three square kilometres in size, there is little development, wonderful snorkelling, wreck diving and a fantastic African culture where Creole is the principle dialect.

About Little Corn Island

Once under British rule, Little Corn can only be accessed by boat from Corn Island.  There are many fisherman that offer a water taxi service, but it can be a hairy ride with breakers to negotiate as the boats are launched from the beach. To this end, Little Corn has remained relatively underdeveloped and the tourism there is largely from backpackers. However, there is one boutique hotel, Yemaya Hideaway Resort & Spa offering a high-end experience in a little piece of paradise.
