(240 reviews on the web)
Wildlife Area
A surfer's paradise on the West coast, Tres Palmas Marine Reserve has a little of everything. Golden sands swoop along the shores, dotted with leafy palms that provide seclusion and gorgeous scenery from which to sun yourself. Giant waves in the winter make this an excellent spot for experienced surfers and for the rest of the year, crystal clear waters and a long strip of elkhorn coral create perfect conditions for snorkelling. Keep an eye out for bottlenose dolphins and hawksbill turtles, the reserve is home to a rich and diverse marine life. Food and drink is available.
