The point in the distance is Punta Tuna with the picturesque Punta Tuna Lighthouse. The beach you see is wonderful to walk on and the swimming is not safe due to undercurrents, good only when it is very calm. It is a popular beach for surfers. This is a MUST stop, the beach just east and the beach just west of Punta Tuna lighthouse, now open to the public.
If you see the beautiful flowering Flamboyant trees in full bloom that's an announcement that summer is here and so are the summer fruit! Summer also means good snorkeling, warmer days and nights and calm oceans. and the summer retreats in the mountains are very popular. Cool evenings and hot days spent on the beach. July is a breezy month. Great sailing. August is the most difficult as the winds will die down while shifting around. September has its storms.
Flamboyant trees are not originally from Puerto Rico. They have been traditionally used to line the roads because they provide the best shade and their branches reach all the way across the road. In the days of horse and carriage this was extremely important, you could ride all day in the shade. Prizes were awarded to the farmers who maintained the best sides of the road with a covering shade.
