Dominican beaches among the best in the Caribbean and the world

The beaches of the Dominican Republic are among the best in the Caribbean and the world say well regarded travel websites. Experts highlight the incredible beauty of Dominican beaches, specifically Rincon Beach, “Cayo Paraiso,” Bayahibe Beach and the Bahia de Las Aguilas (Bay and Eagles), on the country’s southwest region.

Rincon Beach:

Situated in the country’s northeast region, specifically in the Samana Peninsula – home to one of the world’s most beautiful bays – Rincon Beach is considered to be one of the world’s 50 most beautiful beaches, according to a recent list published by Condé Nast Traveler magazine. The publication says the beach is a symbol of the “perfect Caribbean beach.”

“Cayo Paraiso:”

For Dominicans “Cayo Arena” (Sand Key) – situated on the country’s north coast – was included by CNN as one of the world’s top 100 beaches. The CNN special report reveals that this heavenly key “seems to be surrounded by the purest water in the world.”

Bayahibe:

The Huffington Post, a U.S.based newspaper, recently said in its well-read travel section that Bayahibe is one of the world’s top 40 beaches. Bayahibe is situated some 15 minutes east of La Romana, one of the country’s most important east coast cities.

Bahia de Las Aguilas (Bay of Eagles):

The Spanish online travel daily “Viajar” says the Bay of Eagles beach, on the country’s southwest region, is one of the world’s top 25 most beautiful beaches. The newspaper describes the beach as “untouched, pristine, with warm crystalline waters and no trees.”

The daily “Bee Voz” says the Bay of Eagles is one of the world’s “15 most pristine beaches.”

The online TripAdvisor website includes in its 2014 list Playa Bavaro, Macao Beach in Punta Cana, and “Cayo Arena” (Sand Key) beach as three of the world’s most beautiful beaches.

DOMINICAN BEACHES

“Cayo Arena:”

This key is also known as Paradise Island & The Mangroves. “Cayo Arena” features an incredibly beautiful secluded beach, a truly unique beach destination in the Dominican Republic.

This white-sand key is situated very near the coastline. Once on the key visitors feel as if they were on a deserted island, surrounded by crystal-clear, blue-green waters.

Boats leaving from Punta Rucia, a small fishing community in the country’s north coast, will take the visitor to this unspoiled paradise. Punta Rucia is strategically situated near Puerto Plata, the north coast’s most important city, and Santiago, the Dominican Republic’s second largest city.

Bayahibe:

This beach, situated on the country’s eastern region, has been certified for the tenth time as a Blue Flag beach by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). The beach is situated some 15 minutes east of La Romana and less than two hours east of Santo Domingo, the country’s capital city.

Boats and catamarans packed with visitors leave daily from this beautiful beach to nearby Saona and Catalinita keys, and to the Eastern National Park.

Rincon Beach:

This beach, situated on the country’s northeast region, is a major attraction to those traveling to the region. It is situated a short distance from the “Las Galeras,” a former fishing village at the tip of the Samana Peninsula, a former fishing village that has become a resort community featuring several small quality hotels, such as the Apart-Hotel Las Galeras and “Villa Serena.” It is also home to a 400-room, all-inclusive facility operated by the Amhsa Marina Hotels & Resorts.

Travel from “Las Galeras” to Rincon Beach takes about 35 minutes by car, or 20 minutes by boat.

Bavaro Beach is an excellent destination for all diving and water sports.

Bahia de Las Aguilas (Bay of Eagles):

The beach is found in the Jaragua National Park, on the country’s southwest region, and was declared a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO.
