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'll find a large selection of beaches to consider visiting in and around the area. Just click on the name of each beach for detailed information about that particular stretch of sand.

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 location that beach-goers can consider is Humacao Beach. Humacao Beach is a quiet stretch of sand where visitors can escape for a little piece of paradise.

Morillo Beach: The landscape surrounding Morillo Beach is mostly flat, with palm trees lining the shore. The sand is a dark tan, and the waters are a beautiful aquamarine.
