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

There are several beaches to choose from in and around the area. Just click on the name of the beach for a detailed article concerning that specific 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 place for beach-goers to consider is Humacao Beach. Backed by coconut palms and a small fresh water pool, Humacao has soft tan sand and green waters.

Morillo Beach: Morillo Beach is located on the east coast of Puerto Rico, in a heavily populated part of town. While this may lend itself to busy weekends, many would agree that the opportunity to enjoy the calm, cool Caribbean Sea on this beach is worth braving the crowds.

These are just a few of your choices. For more information on beaches available, visit this page.

Miscellaneous Landmarks

Guests will explore some other interesting places worth visiting close to Palmas Del Mar.

If the more functional aspects of life by the sea intrigue you, you should think about 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.
