The Dominican Republic has enough biking, eating, dancing, hiking, and shopping opportunities to keep any visitor busy for months.
If you can’t get enough Dominican Republic, neither can we. The following 10 beaches showcase a little bit of the paradise.
N.r.10. Playa Caribe – this place it’s just 45-minute drive from Santo Domingo. Playa Caribe is a small beach with usually calm waters. You won’t find here bars or restaurants, only an area for umbrella and chair rentals.
Nr.9. Bayahibe – this fishing village with colorful houses offers a great number of activities – snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, paddle-boarding – some say this place has the best scuba diving in the country.
Nr.8. Barahona – Barahona sees few tourists because this place is situated in the southwest corner of the country, removed from major tourist zones. Here, the landscape is stunning, with a wild, beautiful coastline and three national parks in the area.
Nr.7. Catalina Island – this island is quite small – less than 10 square kilometers – but it supports a diverse array of marine, bird and plant life.
Nr.6. – Puerto Plata – this is the home to a number of parks, beaches, markets and a cable car system, Puerto Plata is a popular resort destination.
Nr.5. – Saona Island – we can call this place the most popular attraction from Dominican Republic. This place is better known for its pristine beaches, turquoise waters, groves of coconut and one of its earliest visitors. Cristopher Columb.
Nr.4. – Punta Cana – Para-sailing, Diving, Snorkeling – this place is perfect. Apparently, the fishing’s hot too.
Nr.3. – Juanillo Beach – Juanillo Beach is a little more secluded and little bit harder to find than some of the area’s more well-known sports, and that keeps it relatively quit.
Nr.2. – Samana Bay – this place is famed for its hundreds of humpback whales. Visitors can see them in their mating rituals and in winter calving season.
Nr.1. – Rincon Beach, Samana Peninsula – this place is absolutely breathtaking. This four-kilometer-long beach remains free of major development because it’s not simple to access it – ferry trip from Las Galeras or 45 minutes or so on a bumpy road.
