Punta Santiago Beach – Where Mountain Meets Sea
Punta Santiago is an amazing stretch of beach located near Humacao. It is here, where the mountains meet the sea on an amazing stretch of coastline, that there are many natural wonders to be found. If you are traveling to Puerto Rico, Punta Santiago is a beach well worth visiting – even if just to spend time enjoying the surroundings and wildlife, including the fascinating Puerto Rican coqui.
At Punta Santiago, you’ll find an outcrop of beach which extends into the beautiful blue ocean in a most tantalizing way. Here you can lay your beach towel down on sand that is both coral white and volcanic black in places while the emerald green waters lap at your feet and the soft sound of turf soothes away the stresses of every day life. If you have had enough of this peaceful paradise, you can take your sun-soaked body off to any of the remote coves and do a little exploring.
One of the features of this beach is the small little islet just off the tip of Santiago Bay. Though the Rhesus monkeys who inhabit the island are not generally that welcoming should you actually attempt to step foot on the islet, you may choose to take a boat ride around it and watch their curious antics from a safe distance.
During the days you’ll be able to meander amongst the stalls and kiosks, searching out little treasures to return home with. At mealtimes you’ll be treated to some truly scrumptious local cuisine which are sold at various restaurants through the area. Accommodation to suit all tastes is available, so don’t miss out on a visit to this wonderful shoreline.
