The beaches of Palmas del Mar, while pleasing to the eye, are known for their strong currents and dangerous rip tides.  Visitors are advised to avoid swimming when they notice large waves, and make sure there is a life guard on duty even when they are not.  Fortunately, this high-end resort community has made sure their guests don't miss out on water activity by providing a number of pools and even some with water slides. 

Pick Your Ideal Beach

You'll find an abundance of beaches to choose from in and around the area. You can click on individual names for a detailed guide to that beach.

Humacao Beach

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

A second option to consider is Playa Punta Santiago. This beach is unique in that it features both white and black sands; the white comes from washed up coral, and the black is volcanic matter. Meanwhile, the waters that wash ashore are aquamarine, making the color wheel of Playa Punta Santiago something to behold.

Maunabo Beach: Nestled between the mountains of southeast Puerto Rico is a sleepy little town known as Maunabo. Within this town there are three beaches: Faro Punta Tuna, Playa Faro, and Los Bohios.
