The name given to this site is due to a set of three palm trees onshore that at one time marked the southern end of the reef, but only one of them remains today. Las Palmas reef is beautifully decorated by gorgonians, soft corals and big barrel sponges that provide a rich habitat for an immense amount of marine life. You can often spot Seahorses amongst the soft corals and sponges and Splendid toadfish hiding in caverns. Other residents include the Honeycomb cowfish and many types of crustaceans, as well as the occasional turtle.
