This private island has much to offer. You can relax on a chaise chair, go for a horseback ride, play free games, like mini golf, chess, ping pong, or hike the trails, snorkel and have lunch. Take the time to hike the trails. They have different scenic overlooks that are worth the time and make for some great pictures. Some... More

The beach is so so with a lot of dead coral. If you are just lazing on the blue beach chairs, it's fine. Booties recommended if you intend to snorkel. Fins are a must as currents are strong. Bring insect repellant every where you go in PR. Go to the other side for more privacy and better pictures. Morning visits... More

We stayed at El Conquistador Resort and went over to the island. My children (aged 7 and 10) had a great time, very kid friendly, very quiet, warm water, clean sand, and lots of activities to keep everyone happy.

Spent a beautiful day at Palomino Island. My friends and I found a perfect spot under some picturesque palms to sit and drink beer and have a good time. Water was perfect in January. Hardly anyone else there. Fairly cheap buckets of beer and smooth ferry ride there.

Palomino Island has to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean, it reminded me of the sand/water in Fiji, totally transparent and white dusty sand. Its a very small island and a little hard to get to, but worth the trip and worth spending the entire day at. NOTE to bring snacks, water, sandwiches etc on your... More

We snorkled up to this now seemingly abandoned island by boat. Very pretty. The reef is near the shoreline and there was a lot of beautiful fish to watch

Place is awesome, warm clear water and some great photos. There is regular ferry service from El Conquistador resort and several Catamaran snorkeling tours stop here. Definitely go to the north side of the island after the bar and there is a mini island you can walk to or simply take that perfect Heineken or Corona shot with your feet... More
