We have snorkeled all over the Caribbean and this is the first time I saw bright green brain coral. Spectacular. So many schools of fish-saw 100 blue Tangs in 1 school and another 100 goatfish in another. Hogfish, snapper, lobster, starfish. Visibility was excellent. Depth...More
Pretty relaxing to walk across all the beaches that are included in this so-called reserve. Lots of sea glass and seashells. Although you can't collect because of reserve rules. I recommend this place to everybody.
You can easily walk into the water where it is sandy at this beach to go snorkeling. The coral reef is right up by the shore and you don't have to swim out very far to see many types of marine life. The water was...More
I didn't expect this to be as good of a snorkeling spot as it was. We visited late June and saw many species of fish. You can rent snorkel& mask for $10 for the day. Skip the flipper fins, you don't need them and it...More

It is about a 5-8 minute drive. You need to go up the road on the south-side of Puntas (past the Red Flamboyant Restaurant). Then, make a right on 413. Follow the road down the winding hill. Tres Palmas will visible be on your right, across the fields that roll down to the ocean. Probably the best access is down the road leading to Steps Beach where you can park - look for the Steps Beach sign with a picture on your right. The road is a dirt road leading down to the beach.
