Palmas del Mar is a luxury beach resort that caters to visitors accustomed to a certain quality of life.  Although there are no special attractions to speak of in the town's limits, you can sign up for a number of tours or hire a car to take you just a few miles outside of the area and encounter nature reserves, lighthouses, and more.


Humacao Beach

You will discover an abundance of beaches to consider in and around the area. Just click on the name of the beach for a detailed article concerning that individual beach.

Puerto Yabucoa: With the area known for the rich and fertile soil, you can bet that Puerto Yabucoa is a beach shrouded by a wall of trees (much like the rest of the region). This helps give the beach a much more natural feel than it really is; located just steps from from homes, baseball fields, and other marks of civilization.

Another alternative worth considering is Humacao Beach. Backed by coconut palms and a small fresh water pool, Humacao has soft tan sand and green waters.

Morillo Beach: Calle Dr. Vidal runs alongside the beach, where you can exit onto a dirt road that will take you to the sand.

Miscellaneous Landmarks

Guests can discover some other intriguing places worth visiting nearby.

If the nitty gritty aspects of life by the sea intrigue you, you should consider visiting Punta Tuna Lighthouse. Inside the lighthouse, on the second floor, is a small museum featuring pre-Columbian artifacts found by a local resident named Andres. Andres also runs the museum, so if you have questions about anything on display, he is the guy to ask.
