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 a large selection of beaches to consider in and around the area. You can click on the beach names for detailed information about that particular location.

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.

A second location for beach-goers to consider is Humacao Beach. Humacao Beach can be found at the end of a long dirt road, off PR-923 just south of the air strip serving Humacao. A four-wheel drive vehicle is recommended.

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.

Palmas Del Mar and the surrounding areas are home to many other beaches to choose from. If you're interested, you can find more details by visiting this page.

If the more functional aspects of living by the sea interest you, 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.
